Yes, its that time again!  I’ll take a new photo for this post soon.

As you know, I have a very colorful past.  Most of what I have done was in pursuit of adventure and/or pleasure.  What remains unspoken are the things I have done for the red, white, and blue.  I support the people and cultures of all nations, but America is my home and I will do anything to protect her.

In the past decade we have seen our servicemen and women depart our borders to engage in conflicts in foreign lands.  Many have given their lives in the name of freedom, and we honor their sacrifice personally and through national holidays.  We can send well-wishes to our sons and daughters in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard via services such as CNN’s “Salute to Troops” and see their faces on blogs and Skype.  Their medals can be announced publicly and their departure saluted by all.

What most of us don’t consider is that many sons and daughters serve America with a conviction just as strong as those in the armed services, but do so in silence and, in many cases, alone.  They fight for our freedom with no fanfare, no glory, and without the knowledge of their loved ones.  There is no holiday to honor their sacrifice, no public ceremony to award medals, and no names to be mentioned if their lives are lost.  If they are lucky, they may wind up with a featureless star on the right wall above a book filled with empty lines.

The men and women of America’s clandestine services fight to protect our country more than you will ever know, and they do so without thanks or recognition.  You only hear about their failures, never their successes.  But let me assure you that they are hard at work 24 hours a day ensuring that we sleep well at night.  We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to them and I ask that you join me in extending them our thanks for a job well done.  Trust me – many of us would not be here today if it weren’t for them.
