Service is an honor

To serve in the armed forces of the United States of America is an honor, whether it be active or reserve duty. Let us all not worry about the title of “active” or “reserve” and take pride in the fact that you served honorably in any of our armed service branches. I’m sure that the color of the money received in retirement will be labeled “In God We Trust.” A grateful nation will not worry about the so-called vanity “R” in your title — it just doesn’t matter!
