On a day when our football team got a much-needed boost, Military Appreciation Day was held at Michigan Stadium, a wonderful tribute to those men and women who serve to protect us and our way of life. For those who were not at the stadium, the pregame program included members of the Wounded Warriors Project and Gold Star families. The Caledonian Pipe Band played "Amazing Grace" in honor of those who gave their lives in service to our country. Each branch of the military, veterans and those presently serving, were also honored during the game. A well-deserved recognition.
The sacrifices of these fellow citizens humble me more than I can express in words. And they should remind all of us that freedom is not free.
God bless our soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen and Coast Guard members and their families. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service.
