November 11, 2017 marks another Veterans Day in the United States of America to honor those who served in the Armed Forces. As a nation, we pause to say thank you. We pause to recognize you. We pause to pray for you. We pause to salute you.
For your heroism, we thank you. For your courageous commitment, we thank you. For your meritorious service, we thank you.
We recognize your heroic achievements. We recognize your untiring dedication. We recognize your diligent service both stateside and abroad.
For the sacrifices of your time, we salute you. For the sacrifices of your families, we salute you. For the sacrifices of your lives, we salute you.
We pray for you and your families both immediate and extended. We pray for your health and healing. We pray for your peace.
We owe you a debt of gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy because you served. Thank you for your service.
