I hope that today finds you all spending time with those you love, enjoying good food, with lots of laughter and relaxation. However, I don’t want to let the day pass without addressing the sacrifices that have been made on our behalf. Everyday, young men and women enlist in our nation’s military. Taking oaths to lay down their lives for our freedom.
Their sacrifices are immeasurable, and there are no words to fully express my gratitude to them. The lives lost, and the lives that are forever affected by what they have seen and done are a toll that I will never full be able to comprehend. I do, however, offer my most sincere “Thank You” to all of them. You are what makes me so proud to be an American.
