I went to bed last night thinking about all of our veterans who have served throughout the years. Some served in war time, some in peacetime. Some fought in popular battles, others fought quietly in battles we have never heard of or battles that were later regretted. Some have served on our home soil while others have served in foreign lands far away from friends and family. Some that served were my friends and family, while others that served will forever remain strangers to me. But the one thing they all have in common is that they served. They served our country, they served our citizens, and they served our ideals. For that, there is only one thing that can be said – thank you. Thank you to all those who serve, served, or will serve in the future.
