We interrupt....

.....the Triple T race report series for this important message.

It's not often enough that I take the time to thank those that have served or are actively serving in the Armed Forces. I admit that I sometimes forget what it has taken for the United States to become what it is today. It may not be perfect but it's better than other places in the world.

My long ride Saturday morning, by myself, helped me remember the freedoms we have because of the protection and service of members in the Armed Forces.

Safe roads to travel by car or bike and the freedom to do so.

Clean drinking water and sanitary conditions

Religious freedom and the ability to memorialize loved ones.

I don't know that many veterans or active members of the military.

But to Jason, Dave, Ralph, Jimmy and everyone else...... all have Game On.
