A Fourth of July Thank You

Posted: July 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

The purpose of my post today is a simple one, it is just to say “Thank You” to our soldiers. But not just our active duty soldiers. I want to make sure that we say “thanks” and “we appreciate you” to our veterans as well, it doesn’t matter what war or even if they were in a war, they could have served during peace time, they still served us, so don’t forget them. Let us also not forget our fallen soldiers, those who may have been killed in battle or justsuccumbed to old age, if you’re religious say a prayer of thanks for them, if you aren’t religious, send up a good thought.

Also let us not forget the military spouses and families. Their sacrifice is a great one, sending your beloved off to war, while staying at home and maybe raising a family, praying each day that you don’t see the men in suits coming to your door to tell you the news you dread. Thank you military families for your sacrifices as well.

Thank you to my grandfathers, father-in-law , uncles, and countless friends for your service to our great nation. It will never be forgotten and I will always be thankful as will so many others.

I’m going to leave it at that today. God bless America and all that she stands for. Happy Independence Day.
