In the wake of many tragic events throughout the country and the world, we, as a nation, came together to celebrate our freedom as “one nation, under God, indivisible.” However, as we know, this freedom has come at a great cost of blood and sacrifice throughout our history. As I reflect on the blessings I have as an American, I am overwhelmed and humbled.
As we publish BAHW this month, I wanted to personally thank and pay tribute to the service men and women who love and fight for freedom and hold it dear to their hearts so that we can enjoy the blessings of this wonderful country. They serve unconditionally, standing on the wall to protect our lives and freedoms. They willingly leave family and friends to protect the freedom and way of life that has come at so great a cost. Our armed forces are the threads that hold America together. Thank you for your service and protecting our freedom, our democracy, and our great nation! Let Freedom Ring! God Bless America!
