Thank you to all who have served in America’s wars, living and dead.
Thank you to the ones who came back in one piece, and the ones who did not.
Thank you to all who bear wounds, visible and invisible.
Thank you to the families of all who served.
Thank you to all serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world today.
God bless America.
