I am thankful for Operation Homefront

OPERATION HOMEFRONT:  On the eve of Thanksgiving 2017, I realize there is so much to be grateful for!  I am thankful for the opportunity to gather together to share a meal with family and friends.  At this celebration, we have the religious freedom to bow our heads (or not) and give thanks with any faith we choose to participate in. 

I am thankful for and have a deep appreciation for those who have made the choice to serve our country, both past and present, and their families.   Making a commitment to wear the uniform does not usually include a leave for the holiday, or a large budget for the family’s holiday that they are separated from.  Undergoing physical risks are also endured as part of their decision to serve.  I am thankful for the sacrifices and successes made by our service members, both past and present.
