While the 4th of July is fast approaching, we are all preparing for time with friends and family. During this holiday, it is typical to enjoy good food, take in the outdoors, and the most beloved activity, fireworks. The mesmerizing beauty of those vivid colors bursting against the dark sky represent our freedom and the challenges we have overcome to achieve it.
However, how many of us stop and take a few moments to realize that as a nation this is what we are celebrating? It is easy for us all to say that we do, but I mean really stop and think of all of those that have sacrificed. The life that we all enjoy today, our freedom, safety, and peace of mind is all thanks to brave men and women who sacrifice their lives for ours.
I would love to highlight some great military blogs that focus on some of the challenges faced by our military today and our history. As a nation, we need to take care of those who have taken care of us.
This 4th of July, take a moment to thank those that you know who have served our great nation. Enjoy your friends and family, great food, the outdoors, and revel in those fireworks! After all, this is the USA!

The wind gusts by, cool and crisp, autumn is in the air. All around are shades of red, orange, and yellow. The smell of pumpkin and cinnamon sugar drafts by as the friendly chatter is periodically interrupted by rustling leaves. It is an early morning up on the bluff. This is no ordinary bluff. This bluff and I go as far back as my early childhood memories. From pumpkin picking, caramel apples, tractor rides, and corn mazes - the fall harvest festival has begun.
After all the time, effort, and excitement that goes into planning a vacation, what could be worse than getting sick? Yes, yes, I know, there are worse things that could happen, such as natural disasters, but I am referring to a more personalized experience that effects just you or your travel companions.
