A Month of Thanks: Day 10

Robert Lee Cook, Sr.  WWI

Robert Lee Cook, Jr. WWII

 Raymond Gilliam  WWII

John Franklin Gilliam, Sr.  Korean War

Every day I'm thankful for the men and women in our military who are selfless enough to serve for our country.  Today, I want to recognize these four men:  my great-grandfather Cook, my grandfather Cook, my great-uncle Raymond, and my Pawpaw (grandfather) Gilliam.  Their sacrifice all those years ago has made it possible for us to live the lifestyles we want with freedom.  (I also have the last three men to thank for my son's inherited love of trucks.)  Thank you, veterans, for your service and sacrifice.
