WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

USMC War Memorial in Washington, DC (Also known as the Iwo Jima Monument)   © 2012 by Gary Donaldson

I live in an amazing country – The United States of America.  Our freedoms and opportunity for prosperity and happiness have come at a price.  I’m 47 years old and have never been called upon to serve our country in the armed forces.  That’s because others volunteer – and for that, I am forever grateful and thankful.  And for all of those who have served in past wars and conflicts, and to the families whose loved ones have paid the ultimate price – their lives for our country – Thank you!  I do not take it for granted.
