This is Brittany Bohannon and her parents. Brittany raised over $8,000 for troop support through Operation AC last year and she is still doing it. She has collected bottles and cans, arranged a concert by Clark, the singing state trooper and sold daffodils.
"If I was there, I would want to be supported, and if my brothers were there, I would want to support them and want others to support them," Brittany said. "The way I look at it is they're not necessarily over there fighting for themselves, they're over there fighting for our country. They're helping others gain their freedom and they're putting their lives in harm's way, and I respect them for making that decision to do such a hard job. I greatly respect what they're doing for our country."
This year Brittany and her family are on my list of things I am thankful for.
