Thank you for your sacrifices, for those who gave all, for those who gave some, and for those who left pieces of yourselves on battlefields.
Thank you for your dedication, your service, your determination, and your belief in our country and what it stands for ... for what it stood for when our founding fathers first came together to create this place we call home.
Thank you to your families, for the times they are without you ... for the times they are with you. For the times they have to pack up and move away from family and friends and start all over again because you've been assigned to a new base, a new post, or a new assignment. I know how hard it can be to be a military transient ... especially as a child. Thank you for sacrificing stability for service.
Thank you for standing up when others did not ... or could not. Thank you for stepping forward when others did not ... or could not. Thank you for all you have done and given for those who could not ... or would not.
