I am married to a Veteran. I have many friends who are Veterans. Some of them were severely injured. Some have suffered PTSD. Although I don’t know any personally, some gave their lives. They spend months away from their families sleeping in poor conditions with one eye open, not knowing if they will end up in the line of fire. They volunteer to serve because they want their lives to matter. They feel an obligation to serve their country and they do it with honor.
Thank you doesn’t even begin to describe my gratitude for these brave men and women, but it’s a start. I’m forever indebted to you for your sacrifice for my freedom. I pray for the safety of those still serving and I hope that one day, we will treat our vets with the dignity and treatment they deserve.
