You have been busy defending and assisting other countries while our country was being politically torn apart.
Liberty is never far from you, whether our host countries embrace it or reject it.
Thank God you were not needed to re-establish that Liberty in our homestead.
Your love of our country is only surpassed by your willingness to give it your all, and some have.
Most of us do not know you yet you are the 1%-ers we are proud of.
The best we can do is salute you, say thank you, shake your hands when we see you, and make sure even when the VA is short on (or absent of) wisdom to be sure you get what you need as soon as feasibly possible.
Thankfully, we have a President that is humbled by your hearts, and he honors and respects your efforts.
And above all, we have a God that is waiting on all of us to take the next righteous step, no matter at what level that may be.
