Thank You

I posted this a year ago, and it still rings true today:
If you have ever served in the United States Armed Forces or if you are currently serving in the military: Thank you.

Thank you for supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic and securing my right to live free, safe, and without fear.
Thank you for restoring peace and order in places where chaos sometimes reigns.

Thank you for rescuing, securing, aiding, and rebuilding the cities and towns that are damaged or destroyed by natural disasters.
Thank you for your bravery and for putting others before yourself because the truth is I’m relieved it’s you on the battlefield and not me.

Thank you for all the things you do that I don’t even know about and couldn’t possibly understand enough to fully appreciate.
I honor you.

To the spouses of the men and women who serve our country: Thank you.
Thank you for bearing the hardship and for the sacrifice you make every time your spouse is deployed or away for any length of time in order to fulfill his or her duty.
Thank you for your strength, love, and devotion to our troops.
I honor you.
