Thank you to the brave men and women who have defended our country throughout history, and who defend her today. Let us never forget those who gave their lives for our freedom. And let us treat our veterans and active duty military with the respect and admiration they deserve. Fight for their rights, just as they have fought for yours.
Let us pray for those in harm's way and give thanks for those who walk the wall to keep us safe. Let us remember there are guardians jumping out of helicopters into icy, choppy water, to rescue us. Appreciation is a small thing, until we express it.
