Not a question, but It's left unsaid too often!

I want to say thank you so much to all men and women who serve our country, and also to the family of the ones that serve!! I am truly grateful for your bravery, dedication, and sacrifices! You have my greatest respect! God bless you ALL! A friend that I have known most of my life was killed in an explosion this past week in Afghanistan. It's truly heartbreaking, but I am very proud to have known someone so courageous and selfless to pay the ultimate sacrifice to protect his men. He was an amazing person, and I am saddened that we are short another Hero and friend! I just wanted to show my heartfelt gratitude to all of you ladies out there that serve, or who are wives/daughters, etc of people that do. I appreciate all you do!
