As we are blessed to enjoy this day with our families and our friends let us remember those who so bravely gave their lives so that we may have this freedom and safety that so many do not know.
Today, I am honoring these great men and woman who fought to keep our country free. I am honoring those who have died, those who survived, and those who are still fighting and protecting.
To every American Soldier I say this... I am blessed to be a free American citizen. The pride for my country runs deep and I am forever grateful to each and every brave soldier for this.
Not only today but everyday, I will pray for you, for your families, for your safety.
Thank you for giving so unselfishly of yourselves for my freedom.
May God bless you.
