Tomorrow will commemorate the 62nd annual Armed Forces Day. As members of our community who are grateful for the sacrifices made by our service men and women we would like to publicly thank members of the United States Armed Forces for their selflessness and valor. It is quite simple for us to take for granted our safety, our freedoms and our homes. It is too easy for us to forget the daily sacrifices the men and women of the Armed Forces make on our behalf. They leave their homes, their families, their jobs to take up the mantle of defense no matter what the cost. When called upon they are there to protect. We are truly grateful.
May we challenge the reader for a moment? The next time you see a woman in uniform, thank her for her service. When you see a man wearing a WWII Veteran cap, stop and thank him for his sacrifice. Be bold enough to step out, wherever you are, to thank our military for their services and sacrifices. They were, after all, bold enough to protect you from the front lines.
