Here is my introductory paragraph:
Since the beginning of the United States, the people in the military have been protecting us. From all branches of the military, people have come together and devoted themselves to keeping America safe and free. Whether on the front lines, in an aircraft, or in an office, everyone who has been a part of the military has played a role in giving the United States the status it has today. Those who have ever served for the military must always be remembered. If it weren’t for their bravery, who knows where our country would be. Those who have served will never be forgotten, and for generations to come the U.S. military will stand proudly.
I would appreciate any comments that you have. Thanks!
