So many men of my generation gave their lives on the fields and in the hills of Viet Nam for a war that, at the time, made absolutely no sense to me. Even now, the horror of nightly news still resonates with me.
To all our servicemen and women, thank you for standing in harm’s way to protect our nation and our freedoms. I am very aware that freedom is never free.
For those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, words will never adequately convey the deep sense of gratefulness that comes over me whenever I try to say “thank you”.
There are no words – other than I thank you, I honor you, I cherish the fact that I live freely in the greatest nation on this earth because there were individuals who gave of themselves freely, without hesitation, throughout our country’s existence to ensure that our freedoms remain intact. You are not forgotten.
