Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Craig J. Miller.

Craig served in the Army from 1990 to 1994.

He was awarded the Bronze Star and the Kuwait Liberation Medal for his service during Operation Desert Storm.

Years after his military service, Craig joined the Secret Service in 2000. Based in Virginia, Craig was on temporary assignment in New York on September 11, 2001.

Craig lost his life that day, believed to have been performing emergency response during the attack.

We honor his service.

    I personally like the words man, men, woman, women, sir, ms’am, soldier, airman, seaman, sergeant, captain, etc. My request is not that you be PC, but that the words you use are accurate in the individual or small homogeneous group sense, but in the larger, mixed group context include the members according. Soldiers, aimen and seaman are more distinguished terms of reference than words like person. We are talking about loyal, courageous US military members, right?

    A name or another make understandable we are men of honor and valor, where ever we live and what else may be our name. Substantially we are heroes, unborn heroes whose heroism codify who we are, what we do and why, codify what our DNA and our essence. Unborn warriors, we act for freedom and valors, we act for honor, democracy, human rights respect and, on doing so, are making visible our natural conformation, our warrior character, that is not an imposed one but a natural one that live on us and make us what we are and the why we act just die for what we feel rigth, answering to democratic aspiration and essence. A name or another is the same, as the same we all are, all aimed to rescue, save, make human rights a reality substantially respected, all aimed to defend and offer our life on an excalation growing ever more, all aimed to sacrifice and serve, just our last breathe and also after. That make us the iron men we are, the stones, the diamonds we are and make visible what drive us to make sacre our life, offering it as a natural one, as a natural expression of our mission. That is what we are, that is why substantially a name or another change not the essence that is constituting us and the why we are and act, the why be a servant and defender signify be unborn heroes, Semper Fi and semper operating on else where condition and situation
