On Behalf of a Grateful Nation

Thank you. Thank you to those who gave their lives to ensure that mine stayed free and safe. Thank you to those who risk their lives every day to ensure that America will always have its freedom. Thank you to those in the future who will join our services. Thank you to those who fought in prior wars. Thank you to those who came home. Thank you to those who didn't. Thank you to those currently serving, both at home and overseas. Thank you to the "silent ranks" who hold down the homefront and risk their hearts.
To all the veterans, those currently serving, and those who will serve in the future, on behalf of a grateful nation I say thank you. It is because of you that America continues to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
A special thank you to those military who have affected my life. To my Daddy in heaven, an Army vet who served in the Vietnam war. To my mom's uncle EJ, a man I never met but a WWII Army vet. To my husband's grandpa, another man I never met but a proud Marine who served all over the world during the war. And, most special to me, my husband, an active duty officer in the United States Air Force. I have never been so proud about anything as I am about being a military wife. To all these men, and to all the men and women past and present who keep my country safe, words will never be enough. Simply put, thank you.

A Proud Air Force Wife
