Being a member of the armed forces is no easy job. It’s dangerous, it’s thankless, and oftentimes keeps you away from your families. That said, it is usually a personally rewarding venture, knowing you are doing your part to keep America the greatest nation on Earth.
Granted, there are times when America doesn’t seem as great; we’re irrevocably divided, many of our politicians are corrupt, and some of our citizens denigrate our soldiers, but we’re still that shining beacon on the hill, always ready to welcome you home.
Thank you all for your service, your honor, and your continued commitment to the United States.
