     I just wanted to do a small tribute to our military vets and those serving now. 

 Because the FN is a sports site, I will honor Pat Tillman first. A true hero in my eyes, he felt so strongly the need to fight those who would kill indiscriminately, that he gave up a multi-million dollar carreer to eat dirt for his country. Thank you, Pat. I mourn your loss.

 

To me, Memorial Day means paying respect to all of our serviceman, past and present, living and fallen. It makes me sad when I hear those who would sully our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen, because of their misguided idealism. But this is not about them, it is about these men and women:

       

 

We all owe these neighbors, co-workers, friends, brothers, sisters, fellow Americans of all colors, creeds, and walks of life a debt of gratitude. It's a debt that requires nothing from us but a proper frame of mind, and true understanding of what they do for the United States of America.

And for me personally, I say, "I sometimes feel like a lesser man that I never served. Thank you Dad, my brother, and my grandpas for your service."
