It's hard to put into words sometimes how you feel, how to say thanks. Today is not one of those days. My father in law was a World War II bomber pilot, and I have family in the Navy as well as the Army. Our family is grateful to all who have served. From those in the greatest generation, to those now in harm's way anywhere our US Forces are ... thank you.
A friend of the family - in his 40's, two kids - was called to serve in Afghanistan, and he did two tours. You can't fathom the fear and anguish in a family or the military man until you see it firsthand.
You keep us free, you protect us, you are willing to die for us. My family and I am grateful and pray for your safety.
