People seem to be enamored with musicians, and film and television stars, some to the point of stalking them to get an autograph, maybe just a glimpse. While I appreciate the artists and their contribution to entertainment, I’ve never been one to be star-struck. I have met many high-profile people in my life, including actors and actresses, but none so breathtaking and deserving of respect as those I meet who are sacrificing every day by serving in our military. They are the true stars; the true heroes.

On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.
