Without our Veterans we would have nothing and more than ever, now is the time that we need to realize that.

Veterans have given us so much. One of those things is something that happened just this week. The right and freedom to vote and elect our leaders. Whether your candidate won the election or not, we have that freedom to cast a ballot and let our voice be heard when many countries do not have that ability.

The freedoms we have in this country are unmatched by anyone else and that is solely to the sacrifices our men and women in uniform have made, out of love for us.

At this time I would like to take the time to thank my personal Veterans. My late father Larry Thompson who served in the Army and two of my brothers, Robert and Randy Thompson who served in the Marines. I love you all and thank you from the bottom my heart for your service.

If you have a Veteran you would like to salute, please do so by calling 248-5665 during the afternoon show today.

They all need to hear how thankful we truly are.
