I just wanted to say thank you to my loving fiancé and all of the other service men and woman, past and present, for putting their lives before ours. Thank you for stepping in front of bullets and explosives for people you don’t even know, leaving your families for weeks, months, years, at a time, or even leaving them forever. Missing the birth of children, missing holidays, family gatherings, birthdays, recitals, missing all of these events just to protect the people you care and love for so much, and the millions of people you don’t even know, and never will know. I cannot express how much I appreciate all that you do, all that you sacrifice, for people you will never even meet. Sadly, my fiancé can’t be here to hear me say to him how thankful I am, but he knows how much I appreciate him and how strong I am, and soon he will be home to hear it.Veterans day is about so much more than just a free meal, it’s about remembering all of the people who vow to protect your life before they can even protect their own.If you see a serviceman or former serviceman today, or any other day, please just stop and take a few seconds to thank them. It will not only make their day, but it will make yours too.
