To those who have taught children of the sacrifices made for their freedom, I applaud you. To those who have taken those lessons and given up their freedom to train to defend ours, I appreciate you. To those who have followed their commanders to hostile shores and fought for those of us at home, I salute you. To those who have been injured in the line of duty defending our right of freedom, I honor you. To those who have died for the cause of freedom, I thank you with all my heart for your sacrifice, and to those who have lost a loved one in the defense of our nation, I can never repay you.
