I flew home for my sister’s wedding this past weekend, and as many travelers do, I prayed that I might be that one lucky guy on the plane with the lone empty seat next to me.
As usual, that did not happen.
A gentleman sat next to me, and we got to talking. Turns out he used to be in the U.S. Army Special Forces. I thanked him for his service as we went our separate ways.
Then on my way back to Denver yesterday, a young Marine sat down next to me, and we talked as well. Again, I shook his hand and thanked him for his service to our country.
After I saw the above soldier watching this morning’s practice from the sidelines, I just wanted to take the time to thank all of the brave men and women, in Broncos Country and beyond, who have taken the oath to defend the United States.
