Gene Simmons, Rock & Roll icon, businessman, husband and father, showing his love for the US Military. We should be thankful these men and women put their lives on the line  for the freedom's we sometimes take for granted.

When  President Obama pledged to have our troops out of Iraq by years end, much rejoicing went on all over the country. It's been a long battle, many friends, family members have been forever changed by this war.

All we can do is pray and try to give these men and women back some form of their existence, before the war forever changed them.

With Veteran's Day on the horizon, Keep in mind the Heroes that serve this Country on a daily basis under circumstances that most of us couldn't handle.

They deserve much more than we can ever repay, but if you start with giving R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that's is truly a great place to start.
