Thank you to you who get up every day without your loved ones. To you who rise in the morning, never knowing if today will be your last. To you who stand up and fight for what we take for granted.
Thank you to you who have fallen. To you who have given your lives, your minds, your souls for us. To you who relive memories and nightmares daily. To you who will never be the same.
Thank you to you who are training. To you who have left your families. To you who vow to make the sacrifices for us. To you who pray every day for peace.
Thank you to you who watch and wait. To you who pray and hope. To you whose hearts ache for home.
Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for your willingness. Thank you for your drive and dignity, your love and protection, your joy and your anger and your sorrow and your passion.
Thank you, Veterans and Active Military. We would never be who we are without you.
