Ahh today is the 4th of July, and I may possibly be the happiest man in this country. Looking back at the last couple months of my life proves that I wouldn't live anywhere else in the world.
I have a wonderful career serving my community, in the capacity of a FF/EMT. I love it, it has its bad days and good days but I wouldn't change it.
Last night after working a 24 shift, I came home and enjoyed grilled brats and cold beer with my family.
Father's Day Weekend, I went to MIS to enjoy the NASCAR races for the weekend, got to see the A-10 Warthogs do a fly-over.
A few weeks ago at work, I help an old man who had fallen, after getting him all set we talked for a bit, I learned he was a WWII vet, he was so pleased with our work and professionlism with him(plus he liked my military style haircut) that we chatted for a bit, and he told me of some of his adventures with the 82nd Airborne.
A month ago I purchased a shotgun, and took it home, cleaned it, locked it up and got it ready for the fall hunting season.
This all may seem silly and this thread may not have any replies but I don't care, thats part of the beauty of this country.
I am an American, and God Bless America and Happy 4th of July

I thought it was a nice post until the NASCAR bit. What's so good about watching cars turn left sometimes?
