Sights and Sounds of Freedom

Living under the flight path of the nearby Air Force Base has its positives and negatives. The positives are that we know our skies are protected and that with each flight, someones skills improve. We have seen some neat jets and we are close enough that we could see the USAF Thunderbirds practicing for an air show. We later watched it on the base since it was free and open to the public. That was a couple of years ago. Once in a while we get a jet flying overhead at night or in the middle of the night. It doesn't happen often and I think I have learned to sleep through it. I am greatful for all of the time and effort these people put into defending our country. The local pilots are some of the coolest people and we have had a couple live in our ward. Their families are always bracing in case they need to go to war. Thanks be to God for these people willing to risk their lives for our freedom!
