As most of you know by now, I spent half my life in the military...24 years. Essentially, while most of those serving rarely think about it...and even more rarely talk about, those serving have volunteered to give their life...if called upon...to defend an ideal. For those serving in the militaries of democracies...this ideal is generally freedom.
My question to you, good bloggers, is....if need be, what is important enough that you would risk your life to defend it?
For those of you that are parents, you can't say your children...that's a given or you shouldn't be a parent :-)
