Everything I cherish and believe in was made possible by the sacrifice of men and women fighting the good fight, putting someone else before themselves, leaving their families--maybe for good, and standing up for something much, much bigger than themselves.
I'm so very, very thankful for everyone who has ever served this beautiful country that I love, and yet those words are so small and frail compared to the sacrifices those men and women made for all of us.
We remember you and we will never forget you.
Those words aren't nearly enough either, but they are all that I have. And I give them to each of you freely.
