Today is Memorial Day, and I realize it's a time to remember the men and women who died while serving our country. I honor and respect those who are no longer with us, but I also want to recognize all veterans with this post. I come from a family filled with veterans, including my grandfathers, Harry Bresler, Sr., Melvin Hunsperger and Ken Biby, Sr. My dad, Michael Hunsperger, uncle Melvin Hunsperger and father-in-law Dale Klaus all served too. I have many friends who are veterans as well, including Tom Harness, Jeff Rose and Paul & Abby Bueza.

Since My 1-2-3 Cents is a wrestling blog, I'm going to use today's post to thank some of the wrestlers I know who have or are serving our country. Current Stride Pro Wrestling heavyweight champion Roger Matheus (Roger Minton) is an Army veteran who spent time in overseas. Matheus credits his military training for leading him into Mixed Martial Arts and eventually professional wrestling.

Nathan Brag (Benjamin Abney), who is a member of the DR Party, is currently serving the United States of America as a member of 31B Military Police of the National Guard. Regular attendees at Stride Pro Wrestling events may have noticed Brag hasn't been at the last few shows. That's because he's had training for his National Guard duties.

There are several other wrestlers who have served our country. Road Dogg, Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Dutch Mantel, Randy Orton, Steven Cutler, Kenneth Crawford, Freddie Blassie, Macey Estrella, Kevin Nash and everyone's favorite patriot Sgt. Slaughter all have military backgrounds. 

While I know thank you is not nearly enough, it's all I've got. I appreciate the service by all these men and women and the thousands of others who have protected our freedoms.
