What do we say to those men and women who fought for our freedom?
Words cannot describe the tears that are shed as we watch those we love go off to defend our country.
Words cannot describe the worry etched on a parent’s face, the dried tears on a spouse's pillow, the longing look at kids who have both parents safely at home.
There are two words that we can and should say to our Veterans: THANK YOU.
Thank you for stepping forward, when others stepped back.
Thank you for placing yourself in danger, so I may go about my normal day.
Thank you for braving unspeakable horrors of war.
Thank you for sacrificing your time with your family, for missing those milestones the rest of us take for granted.
Thank you to your family for understanding your need to sacrifice, so the rest of us can sleep soundly at night.
Thank you for showing our youth that Superhero’s don’t wear capes – they wear uniforms that proudly show our nation's flag.
A huge thank you to our Veterans from all of us at Marek!
