Thank you veterans for sacrificing for our country and its freedoms. Without you we would not be the nation we are today. We salute you and the willingness to serve in peace time and in war. Thanks for leaving your families to go alone to foreign fields for months on end. We appreciate your willingness to be in harm’s way to ensure that we remain a free nation, with freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom to vote. You are not overlooked for your efforts in the war on terror and the missions in Afghanistan and Iraq. You are not forgotten for the past wars and protecting our home country. Thanks to all who have served in years past and who currently serve. Our prayers are with you. God bless America!
