Following is a transcript of Todd’s Veterans Day commentary:
Todd Love is a third-generation Marine.
He signed up for the Corps right out of high school,
Leaving his home in Acworth, Georgia to join the fight in Afghanistan.
He was on foot patrol that morning — the point man –
When an improvised explosive device tore through Todd’s body.
He was 20-years-old.
Lost both his legs and an arm.
But like dad said — his boy was still alive.
Todd came back home to Georgia to a hero’s welcome.
Hundreds lined the motorcade.
Little League players covered their hearts with their ball caps.
Girls waved American flags.
Boy Scouts stood at attention
As they honored this native son who left a boy – and came home a man.
Today – we honor our veterans.
Men and women who stand in our stead,
Willing to shed their blood for a nation – and for each other.
We are the Land of the Free, the Home of the Brave
All because of Americans like Marine Corporal Todd Love.

God Bless You, Todd Love! We salute YOU today!
Thank you Todd Love for our freedom. Thank you to the many thousands of men and women who have given their lives and for those that are in battle now, thank you for your service.
The veterans make it possible for her freedom & she snubs them.
