National Military Appreciation Month is celebrated nationally every May. All Americans should recognize the the symbol of unity that our armed forces have. It is to honor former and current members of the military including those who died fighting for freedom.
Kevin Hillery, a 22-year-old man who was paralyzed last year after a tree fell on him, made history yesterday when he became the first-ever paraplegic to graduate from the United States Naval Academy. Way to go, Kevin!
