Speaking for my family and myself, I want to thank all our veterans.
Thank you for your military service defending and protecting the country we love. Our country would really be in a mess, or not be at all, if not for you.
I hope your families and friends realize that you are great people disguised as regular family members, friends, and neighbors, both men and women. Whether or not you saw combat, you were ready to risk your life if called upon.
So I say you all deserve a "Well done Soldier, Marine, Sailor, Airman, or Coast Guardsman." And you deserve a lot more too, including a sincere "Welcome home!" if you did not receive one when you should have. Thank you.
