Carry the Flag Indeed

In case you haven’t seen it, the Blue Jackets are offering you a chance to thank our troops.

These aren’t comic book heroes. These aren’t cinematic stunt men and women. These are honest to goodness, flesh-and-blood patriots protecting our rights and security, and they should know that we are thinking of them here at home.

You might not know this, but there are a couple exceptions to the “no cheering in the pressbox” rule, and this is one of them. Therefore, I’m joining you in giving these soldiers a standing ovation.

Nothing can ever be said to measure up to your commitment.

However, it’s important you know how grateful I am.

Thank you for your sacrifice and service. Thank you for being swift and sure.

I salute you, because you are America to me.

With sincerest and most heartfelt appreciation,

Lori Schmidt
