A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life.
Merely saying "Thank you" doesn't begin to express the gratitude I feel for the men and women who were, and are, willing to give their all for our freedom. America is truly the land of the free because of the brave, and for that I will be eternally in their debt. Thank you, Veterans. And thank you to your families, who also sacrifice. As the daughter of a career military man, I know what the families must endure firsthand. May God bless you all.
