Real Heroes Wear Dog Tags
"Real heroes wear dog tags."
A woman handed me a thank you card with the phrase, "My heroes don't wear capes, they wear dog tags." As she expressed her gratitude for my service to our country, this phrase impacted me in a profound way.
In the weeks following this event, I pondered this phrase and revised it to summarize the statement being made. I now wear this quote to express honor and respect to those who have served and are serving our country to give us the freedoms we have today. They are the real heroes.
