The music performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir changes lives for good. I have been listening to their music since I can remember. Mother used to turn on the radio every Sunday morning and our family listened to the broadcast and "The Spoken Word."

I find, many times, that I am the first to stand when the National Anthem is played. I also take off my ballcap and place it and my hand over my heart. The anthem reminds me of my service in Viet Nam, my uncle's service in World War II, my grandfather's service during World War I and my great-great grandfathers service as a Union soldier. It also reminds me that Freedom isn't Free. I don't necessarily agree with the war in Irag, but I will stand and honor those men and women who have served there, every time the National Anthem is played.

I too have served, and I agree with what you've said here. I have several friends and family members who have served, and tell you what, I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I could!
