7News Editorial: Appreciating our military

(Source KSWO) (Source KSWO)

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -May is Military Appreciation Month.

Having personally spent time out at Fort Sill, getting a glimpse into the day in the life of a soldier, KSWO general manager Kelvin Mize is even more appreciative of the work that the military does.

Many times we take the freedoms and liberties we have in this country for granted. It’s easy to get caught up in our daily lives...forgetting that our way of life is made possible because of our military. While we're here in the U.S., enjoying our freedoms, there are men and women throughout the world fighting for our country and this American way of life.

Currently, the U.S. has troops in 74 countries across the world. They're away from their families, risking their lives, working to insure we continue to live with these freedoms.

During the month of May, take time to thank and appreciate the work that is being done on our behalf by our military men and women and the sacrifices they are making for us.
