Guest Blog Post - Steve Lee

To me the whole trip comes back to one thing - our men and women in uniform, the Pride of America. From Guantanamo Bay to the George Washington or to Colombia, at each stop there is dedication and enthusiasm in howthey are serving our country.

Of course, they are far away from home and for a long time. Being a parent I certainly admire their moms and dads and how they must miss them.

Talking to the troops, they are so happy and proud to share what they do and see the expression in their eyes of their patriotism for the USA. It gives me cause to appreciate the sacrifice of those who gave all, the wounded, and those who are serving all over the world... and of course the families, wives, children, brothers, sisters, moms and dads.

Being here on this trip also has given me time to reflect on a fine American family, the Maupins of Cincinnati, Ohio, whose son until recently was missing for four years in Iraq. They have been ruly an inspiration to all.

Each and every day I find new reasons and gain more connection to Support Our Troops the Best I Can! Until they all come home, what a privilage it is to serve those who serve.
