    Just an end of the year THANK YOU to all our military, police and firemen who protect us, and give us the ability to look forward to all the good and bad experiences we'll all enjoy in our relative bubble of comfort and ignorance in the United States.

    In 2012, in an effort to protect the United States and it's citizens, we lost:

    309 troops in Operation Enduring Freedom
    123 cops on duty in the US
    80 firemen on duty in the US
