Veteran’s Day can be a difficult holiday for some people. Those who have lost loved ones in battle still deeply mourn their losses. Those who are home while their loved ones are currently serving still worry. And those of us who are not immediately engaged in the world of military life might find it difficult to fully comprehend the sacrifices and the pain that those who are involved experience.

But for all the mixed emotions that some might feel, there is one emotion that can be shared and expressed: Gratitude.

To all who serve or have served, to their families and those who work alongside – Thank you!

Thank you for your service. Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for your hard work, often carried out without thanks or appreciation. Thank you for your strength and willingness to continue.

God bless you,
