I’m going to take a quick minute to say THANK YOU. Yesterday my nephew-in-law returned safely home from serving a year in Afghanistan. Jeremiah Holt, I salute you! The entire family is proud of you in every way.
I am also proud to say that military service runs deep in my family too. Their service has been, and still is, the hallmark of patriotism.
Dad – Aaron Brooks, Army
Brother – Marc Brooks, Army
Brother – Mike Brooks, Marines
Brother – Philip Brooks, National Guard
Sister – Mystique Maldonado, ROTC
Aunt – Kayelle Allen, Navy
There’s more, but there’s not enough room to name all the cousins, aunts, uncle’s, grandparents, and extended family and friends who deserve recognition. But I want to let you, and every single person who serves, know that I always respect what you do. And say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. May God Bless each one of you and keep you safe.
