11th, 2013... Proud American!
This weekend has given us the chance to appreciate, thank, and remember
all the men and women who have served our country to protect our
freedom. On Saturday, we wore special jerseys in warm-ups that were
auctioned off for Military Appreciation Night. The Blue Jackets even
gave a free ticket to all military personnel who came to the game. It
was nice to get the win on a night that means so much to me.
On Sunday, the Marines celebrated their 238th birthday. They are such a
special group with an amazing legacy: the few, the proud, the Marines!
Today we thank all the veterans,
active military, and their families for the sacrifices they make to
protect our freedom. Happy Veterans Day! Although we celebrate what
they do for us with a holiday, please thank our military every chance
you get. God bless the USA!
