Great Falls Balloon Festival Friday Night- Something a little different. Thanks to Jack & Lisa Ramsey for the photos and the stories. Thanks to the troops for being the people that have enabled us to exist in the greatest country on Earth.

Have you thanked a member of the United States Armed Forces lately? As Americans, we don't thank them enough. This page is devoted to our Armed Forces. The men and women that are instrumental in keeping our liberties as Americans intact. If you haven't thanked a soldier lately, please take the time to do so in the near future or even today.

We take them for granted far too often because things are pretty darned good in the US of A... We were surprised and appalled at how many of these people never had people tell them, "Thanks for your service."

It only takes a minute, and you will make their day. Without their sacrifice, what would your American life be like?

The America One and Patriot balloon teams salute some of the Patriots at the Great Falls Balloon Festival on Friday, August 19, 2005

Thank you all.
