Thank You Vets!!!!

Thank you veterans... I can't tell you how much your service is appreciated.

I've got a friend overseas right now that should be home in a little over a week and I am just SO incredibly thankful that every time he's been stationed overseas he's come home safe and unharmed, but I know what he and all the other members of our armed forces risk on a daily basis.

Don't forget to show your love for these incredibly giving and wonderful members of our community, who make the incredible sacrifice of being away from their family and friends on a regular basis, for far less pay than they deserve, less support than they deserve in terms of medical and psychological care, risking the fact that the government might screw them over in the end, and for very little in the way of reward.

Also, and this is just as important, don't forget to show your love for the family members of our armed forces.  The spouses, whose bravery in giving themselves over to such a risky love and such a long distance one, the children who grow up without their mother or father by their side, and the parents who support their children in these risky endeavors.

Thank you, all of you, for your sacrifices, your passion and your service.
