I want to take a few minutes and thank everyone who has served in our armed forces. Many of you have sacrificed a lot to protect our freedoms. Because of you, we have the opportunity to enjoy our freedoms, including watching 49er football games.
As a former member of the Alaska Air National Guard, though I was not active duty, I have an appreciation of what our men and women in uniform have to sacrifice on a daily basis. Sacrifice may not be as "big" as losing life or limb, but extra duty time, PTSD, or not being able to attend a child's event are all worthy sacrifices.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all, and a big THANK YOU to not only our military, but the families who have supported them!
