Kathryn Taylor said, “My family and I are the beneficiaries of men and woman who have made great sacrifices for our freedom. My children have never known a time that our country was not in conflict or at war. As I am afforded the luxury of watching my children grow and enjoy the inherent freedoms that have been granted to them by birthright of our country. I can’t help but think of those who have provided us with such privilege.”
“I have often been asked, “Why are you doing this and what makes you qualified.” To this my only answer is, I am qualified because I have benefited from the sacrifices being made and if not me, then who?”
