To the brave men and women overseas in the Middle East and abroad, serving our Country and fighting for Freedom, I want to Thank You. I salute you and am reminded that you are unable to be with your families this Holiday Season. Thank you for sacrificing your lives in doing without and being so far away to fight when you are called upon... to serve when you are called upon... and for volunteering to be called upon. May God bless all of you and protect you and your loved ones.
And to the men and women of the forces that serve our Country locally: Thank You. For police, fire, search & rescue, medical... all these branches and some I didn't mention. Thank you for being on-call 24/7 even during the Holiday Seasons.
God Bless you and your families. And all of us.
