There are 21 MILLION veterans whom we can thank for our freedom (unfortunately we can't thank the millions who are no longer with us, but I think of them too)! I cannot thank enough of them to make a dent in how thankful I am. Sometimes it's too overwhelming a thought for me. I say it in my head if it doesn't make it out of my mouth to every veteran I see. I am truly thankful for all of you.
Not only the men and women who have put his/her life on the line, near the line, or supported the line, but also to the families of the servicemen. The families whose wife/mother/daughter/aunt/grandmother/husband/father/son/uncle/grandfather have served. Those who have been gone. I can't imagine the struggles and joys the single parent/spouse went through while their loved on was deployed. The sacrifices everyone has made for the rest of us to be safe.
