SENDING THANKS TO THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY…
Today, on Veterans Day, let us all take a second to pause, to reflect and to express our deep gratitude to the brave men and women who have served or are now serving our nation. In times of peace and in times of war, in times of unity and in times of division, these courageous people have tirelessly risked their safety to protect our freedoms.
This year, let us remember the service of our heroes and their families, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free. We hope you’ll join us in giving thanks to these outstanding individuals, today and always, even if it just means a heartfelt ‘thank you’ and a handshake during a casual encounter at a coffee shop.
