This is a note of thanks to all U.S. servicemen and women who serve this country today. Whether you served here or in some far land, if you are safe or under fire, your service does not go unnoticed.

I know that I have freedoms because of you and the sacrifices you make on my behalf. I know that you have volunteered to do this great task of your own free will, knowing that you may put yourself in harm's way for my safety, willing to give your all at any moment.

Never think that I don't care, because I always do. Thank you for making me feel safe during the day and at night when I sleep. Thanks to you, and all who serve, I am free. May God bless you and the many others who serve throughout the world this day.
