    Salute to troops

    So proud of my families military tradition!

    I want to salute my son Specialist Kyle Knievel of the US Army Nebraska National Guard. Kyle is one of a long list of family members serving this amazing country. Kyle joined between his junior and senior year of high school and has almost 4 years served already and he doesn’t even turn 21 until Saturday. Kyle is a senior at Wayne State College majoring in Criminal Justice. Kyle has wanted to be part of the military since he was about 7 years old following in the footsteps of his grandfathers and uncles. Kyle intends on becoming full time military after he graduates in December and serving his country until he retires. I am very proud of my son, and the sons and daughters joining so young to provide us with the many freedoms we share today. I salute my son, Kyle, as well as all other service men and women including their families for all their sacrifices. My God bless and watch over all!!
