I would like to take a moment and thank all of my fellow Veterans for their sacrifices and dedication. It’s because of us that our country remains free today. Being a Veteran isn’t something that I take lightly and neither should you.
Thank you Veterans for the years of service to our country. You didn’t have to sign that contract or take that oath to support and defend our constitution, but you did it. I know personally it wasn’t an easy decision, it was likely a decision made with your entire family at a dinner table or coffee table. Thank you to them as well.
Thank you fellow Veteran for the years of eating nasty food, dirt in your face, superiors barking orders that don’t make any sense, for all the push-ups, running, front back goes and pain and suffering on your bodies. Thank you fellow Veterans for all the birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, back yard BBQs and family celebrations that you missed because you were either training or were deployed keeping the peace. Thank you for missing your children growing up, for missing first steps, first words and milestones after milestones. Thank you Veterans for only being able to call home for 10 minutes at a time each week, month and sometimes longer. Thank you Veterans for the friends we make, the friends we loos in battle, the friends that move on and we don’t see again.
Thank you to the Veteran families for their sacrifice. Thank you for keeping the home front going and assuming both the mom and dad roles sometimes even at the drop of the dime. Thank you Veteran families for assuming all the stressors of life, handling whatever the military dishes out at any given time and for understanding how that effects us Veterans.
Thank you to all of our current men and women actively serving our country. Thank you to our active duty military members for assuming the most dangerous and dedicated profession in the world. Thank you for your families’ current sacrifices in today’s crazy ass world and it’s ever changing mission. Thank you for your dedication in raising the flag every morning, lowering the flag every night and for honoring our fallen Veterans.
Thank you to all the providers of Veteran benefits, Veteran Affairs workers and life coaches. Thank you to those Veterans who continue to serve our country by helping fellow Veterans make a better life for themselves.
Fellow Veterans I am grateful for your service, sacrifices and continued dedication to our country. Thank you for all the good times, the camaraderie and friendship over the years. Thank you Veterans….
