Folks like this got -- units.
Joins us right now.
You normal course is being you know hot to answer all of that got its big award -- we -- -- has been -- night's regular decent guy overcame a hell of a lot.
To try to help out his fellow heroes two are very good to have you -- doing.
Have a good man it's good to see you again it's I always feel though you elect the military guy that always gives me a hard time accepting.
Med school it's all love I'll take you would open -- as it.
I could give you a hard time -- here yeah the grand Marshal this here's national Memorial Day parade in DC that's a very very big honor.
And you always try to remind folks that wars might be controversial and come and go but the folks in Florida.
Still we still have to look after -- though it.
Absolutely absolutely right -- you -- -- and in a lot of military personnel opportunity over the years to be able to kind of share that messes with your audience and I thank you for that.
But that's what it is is we wanna continue to remind people that as -- -- another day off from work and they're gonna open up a cold woman and spent time at the pool with their friends or whatever they're doing to take a moment.
To take just they simple moment with the people around him and say we we think those.
Men and women that over the years over generations have made the ultimate sacrifice and also their families that they left behind.
And more importantly let's take care of the troops that are coming home that make -- back home injured.
Or not injured and let's find ways to kind of take care of our own.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And you still fighting that war is still have to keep that doing the job.
Did it affect her rounds it'd affect just the willingness of -- your friends just to keep plugging away.
Yeah absolutely I mean because you know you know you kids into the day and is as much as you look after one another mean everyone still has their opinion and and and what they believe.
But it's one of those things where it as as in May interfere at times you just gotta gotta find a way to come together as one because ultimately.
All you really can rely on is each other to get back home to your friends your family your freedom.
And so it's it's one of those things where you just kind of got to put a lot of that in the back of your mind because the -- your -- needs to be focused on the task at hand so.
Its size is one of those things and that's what we're trained to do -- service members just put.
Essentially the thought of of all of that in the doubt in the back of our minds just push forward and try to get back home and then deal with that.
You know you had to go to so many operations after.
You know you were badly injured and in Iraq and I'm thinking there are a lot of guys -- early in the process recently injured recently banged up.
Who who have not hit that point yet where they can and say OK I can move on now what do you tell them.
-- keep fighting.
You know keep fighting no different than when you're deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan are dependent on how long you've been in the military what war you've been to a what -- you're line.
No different and then when you fought just again and get through the year the deployment to get back home.
No different than you fought when you're going to of course in the military you keep fighting this is different courses is life and you find ways to at the end of the day and understand if people care about you and there are resources to help you and it's important for us including myself -- Two as -- essentially be a voice and establish these policies to help establish these policies.
So these individuals feel like OK there actually is something out -- to take care of us.
You know it's good seeing you again be well.
Always man had a great weekend you.
