A grateful civilian

Today, I am thankful for the men and women who serve or have served in our armed forces.

They endure sleepless nights and days without the luxury of a shower.

They spend months –sometimes years– deployed away from their families.

They suffer wounds that leave permanent scars both seen and unseen.

Some lose their lives. Their lives.

So, regardless of what your political stance is on current military endeavors, be thankful for the sacrifices of those who’ve stepped up to fill the shoes of the American soldier.
