Happy Thanksgiving!

All of us have much to be thankful for.

I know I am thankful for things like good health, a good family, and good, loyal, friends who stick with me.  I also wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of something else I am very thankful for… and that is our troops down range, outside of the wire, doing the do.  Bombs on target on time.

While most of us will enjoy today watching football, eating dinner, and enjoying the company of family, friends, and loved ones… there are a chosen few who will not.  These brave men and women volunteered to serve their county – no one made them.  They just did it…  We all owe our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coastguard a debt of gratitude which can never be repaid.

When you say your Thanksgiving Day prayer make sure we remember those who serve, have served, and those who paid dearly so that you and I can enjoy the liberty and freedom that comes with the holiday.
