Today, we would like to take this opportunity to honor the 21 million veterans still living in this great country of ours – men and women who have put their lives on the line for what is truly the greatest cause of all: freedom.
We would like to tell you what you mean to us; describe how honored we feel to have had you protect us; express in some way how grateful we are for everything you’ve done.
But frankly, it’s hard to find the words.
Because to be honest, when it comes to how profoundly appreciative we are, words fail us. They simply don’t – can’t – do justice to your service.
So all we can say is thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you 21 million times.
