A big thank you to all who have served and those who are serving now. We enjoy the freedoms we have because of your sacrifices. For the holidays you didn't get to spend with your families, for the separations and before e-mail, Skype and satellite phones where all there was was snail mail and expensive phone calls we thank you for putting up with it all. For the lousy pay (Mac made about $163 a month when he was first in) you took for doing such an important job we thank you. And thanks to the families that supported you leaving family and friends to move with you.
Mac served 21 years in 4 countries and retired as a Master Sergeant. This is his day.
