This year I decided to make a clean and simple statement about my patriotism. I love being an American, I am proud and strong in my conviction. America is GREAT and has always been GREAT. My son, my father, and my grandfathers fought for our freedom and this great nation. We have all suffered losses in keeping our country strong, free and proud, and I will never forget those sacrifices. I am FREE, I am PROUD, I AM AN AMERICAN.
