born into this

Sgt. Andrew Cochran, a sniper from Fort Riley, stands near a display of armored vehicles from the Big Red One at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kansas on November 3, 2012.

Fort Riley soldiers unfurl a giant American flag during halftime of the K-State football game against Oklahoma State at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kansas on November 3, 2012.

I met Sgt. Andrew Cochran during K-State’s Fort Riley Appreciation Day on November 3, 2012. Fort Riley is a United States Army post located close to Manhattan, Kansas and is the home of the First Infantry Division. Sgt. Cochran is a third generation soldier. His grandfather served in the Korean conflict, his father served in Vietnam, and Sgt. Cochran served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This Veterans Day, I want to thank Sgt. Cochran and all of the men and women in the military who do their jobs so I can live free and safe. I truly appreciate your dedication, service and sacrifice.
