A real hero. It's not a pro football player, pro baseball player, pro basketball player. It's not a rich, ego-filled actor. It's not a Ted Turner millionaire. It's a person who's given the best years of their life to serve their country. It's the Marine, sailor, airman, U.S Army vet and the Coast Guardsman. These are our heroes.

Let's appreciate these people every day, not just Memorial Day. Any time we see these great Americans, lets go up and say, "Thank you for serving."
