I want to send out a big thank-you to all living veterans of the US military for your service to our country. The time you spent in the armed forces is time you will never get back. But that sacrifice has kept our country free from foreign invasion, a blessing few countries in the world have known.
I also want to thank families that have lived for years or decades without a loved one who died in the line of duty. And last, but not least, I thank – and pray for – families who are caring for a veteran injured while in the service. These people are sacrificing and serving every day. May God bless your families!
