From the bottom of my heart: thank you to all veterans who have served this country and sacrificed to preserve our way of life and our national peace. We owe more to you than we'll ever understand. You carry with you the marks of service and war - something that only a special few will every know or grasp. As a citizen and a proud American, I want to tell you that your actions do not go unnoticed. Today may you receive even a small portion of the gratitude which you are so rightfully due.
