Military: Navy town life appreciated

Thank God I live in a Navy town. Today I heard the sound of freedom as the planes flew overhead.

Thank God I live in a Navy town. When I went to town, I saw them all ... young and old ... some retired military ... men and women of the Army, Navy, Marines and the Air Force. They shopped in our stores, worshipped in our churches, and were involved in all facets of city government.

Thank God I live in a Navy town. I am grateful to the military, past and present, for my freedom to shop, worship and be involved as I choose. Your presence in this town is admired and appreciated.

This town is a great collection of people ... Dutch, Irish, Italian, Scandinavian, German and Navy. Let us not forget our heritage ... ethnic and military.

Thank God I live in a Navy town.
