Veterans, thank you for your service and sacrifice, defending this great nation.
Thank you to all of the families that have a family member/members, that have served and sacrificed as well. It’s not easy having a family member/members, who are away for long periods of time, who are possibly in harm’s way, and that aren’t able to be home with you, because they are keeping us all safe.
Freedom isn’t free. It must be protected and preserved, and we have the unbelievably brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces to thank for it.
We are the land of the free, because of the brave. If you know a veteran/veterans, please take the time to thank them for their service and sacrifice today. They will appreciate it.
