Today we give . . .
Thanks to our veterans for all you have done, and for the freedom that you have protected.
Gratitude to their families, wherever and how long you serve.
Prayers to those who serve are far from our shores, and those who are near.
And may those who wait, those who suffer, and those who bind up the wounds find strength, courage and rest at the last.
To our veterans: Blessings on your day.
