Today is Memorial Day. A day set aside to remember all the soldiers who have died for our freedom. May we never take our freedom for granted.
On a much lesser note, this time of the year is also a personal anniversary of sorts.
A year ago, on Memorial Day weekend, I finally made a decision. I decided to pursue my childhood dream of joining the U.S. Military. The path I chose to take is Air Force ROTC (AFROTC). I'll begin my time as an AF cadet this fall. I know the journey to becoming an Air Force officer will have ups and downs. I know it will not be easy. I am very thankful for my supportive family and friends and I know that most importantly, God will never leave or forsake me.
"If we maintain our faith in God, love of freedom, and superior global air power, the future [of the US] looks good." ~General Curtis Lemay
