AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR VETERANS
Since we became an independent country many years have come and gone, however, there is one constant that remains from the 1700’s
through today. Our country has had many brave men and women volunteer to defend our country. There was a movie produced about World War II,
whose name I cannot recall, but at the end there is a line which rings true (even though the words are not an exact quote), “Where do we get
these brave men and women to always step forward when the need arises?”
These men and women come from all over our country and too many times are taken for granted. Men and women, who during times of
war and peace, are on-call 24 hours a day 7 days a week and spend countless holidays, birthdays and special events away from their family and
friends. The pay is not great, but they continue to volunteer and many make it a career.
They are mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, cousins and friends. We may not always agree in the
wars and battles that we fight, but this should not deter us from the support we give to these men and women in uniform. It is through the
sacrifice that they and the numerous individuals before them have made, which provides us with the freedoms we have to disagree and speak our
While words cannot pay what we owe you and your families, we ‘thank you’ for your sacrifice. To the families who have lost loved
ones, we offer our most heartfelt condolences. Many of us have never endured the pain you must feel, but our hearts hurt for your loss and wish
we could help ease your pain.
Let us never forget the people who did not make it home. Remember those still serving in our prayers and never take for granted
the sacrifices they make. In closing, one more time I would like to say……
