Today we turn our thoughts to those who have served so bravely in defense of this country and its people. I am not a proponent of war, but I am not naive to the fact that a strong military is a necessity to ensure our freedoms and to help those less fortunate around the world. Our politicians send our young men and women out into the world and put them in harm’s way sometimes for a good cause, sometimes not. Today let’s spend a few minutes thinking about the soldiers. The brave, and sometimes not so brave, who do their jobs despite the horrors and discomforts they will face.
Today I say a heartfelt thanks to those who are serving and to those who have served in the past. I appreciate the work you do and the sacrifices you and your families are making on a daily basis.
I wish you could all come home!
