These are just a few of the veterans from my family, but that does not keep me from appreciating the sacrifices made by all of my veteran ancestors, as well as all of the veterans and active members of the armed forces. Your hard work is the reason we are still able to call ourselves free and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
