There is so much to be grateful for every day, and today is a day where the focus should be to celebrate the families who sacrifice time away from their loved ones for the greater good of our country. What a tremendous gift.
I've been touched personally by extended family members and dear close friends who have made this sacrifice,and there are not enough words to express our gratitude. There is no better day brightener than the photos of their homecoming hugs on Facebook, and the opposite heart wrenching posts showing how they miss each other and documenting milestones missed while away.
So thank you to all who have served past, present and future. We honor you today and always.
