We’d like to take a moment and offer our sincerest thanks to all those who have served in the armed forces. Whether in war time or in peace, members of the US Armed Forces have made tremendous sacrifices to preserve our freedom
That is something we do not take for granted. We realize that our service members have endured unfathomable hardships, incredible uncertainty, and sometimes even harsh criticisms. Their families, too, have endured much in loneliness and unspoken fears as they watch their loved ones leave for extended periods of time. That is true sacrifice.
This Veteran’s Day, we also think of those who have given the ultimate gift to serve their country. Our hearts break when we see images of loved ones of fallen soldiers clasping a folded flag, and having to say good bye. While it deeply saddens us, we also swell with pride knowing that our country is represented by such brave and selfless individuals.
To all of our courageous men and women, we say thank you. You are our heroes.
