“Thanksgiving is a time to gather with friends and family to celebrate all we have to be thankful for. On this day, we are reminded to appreciate the gifts of liberty and freedom which are not only precious, but also worthy of protection and care. We are truly fortunate to live in a nation that provides every individual the freedom to pursue the American Dream. With the holiday season underway let us be thankful for all the brave men and woman of the United States Armed forces who serve and protect these rights. Their courage and dedication must always be respected and remembered.”
