I come from a long line of amazing women and men. All of my grandfathers served. My aunt was one of the first graduating class of women from the Naval Academy.
To say I am proud of these people is selling them all short. They have contributed so much to my family and our nation.
Grandpa Cozy's funeral was not my first at this cemetery. My dear friend, Robby, is feet away from my grandfather. Seeing the way that this place honors heroes and loves families is moving to the very core of your being.
To all those who have served and continue to serve, I thank you for your service to our great nation.
To my Colonel, may you find the skies favorable for flying tomorrow for your first Veterans Day in heaven. May God bless and keep you until we meet again.
