Let's start by saying that photo with the cheese smile in the studio was me. That was during our six-month deployment on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln. I ran the radio station, hosted a show and more.

I was in line at the Little Caesar's the night of Halloween to grab some pizza for everyone stopping by. There was a man dressed in uniform waiting to pick-up carry out. I wasn't able to catch him in time to pay for his pizza and I just thought he should never pay. Veteran's rank the highest on my list and that will never change. You can't put a price on freedom and that's what our military provides for us every day. Here's a list of some free things to celebrate Veteran's Day and please pass this along.

Thank you again for your service and to your family for sacrificing holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and every other special occasion without your hero so we can have ours freely.
