Happy Thanksgiving

in Thank You messages (Acknowledgement)

To all my fellow Americans I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you’re able to spend it with family or dear friends for a fun and relaxing day.

I also want to express my gratitude to everyone overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan, particularly our active duty military.  A major holiday like Thanksgiving is an especially tough time to be away from home and family.  Thanks to all our military for your daily sacrifice and service to our nation.

If you can, I invite you to use one of the many nonprofit organizations devoted to veterans to send a care package or greeting to our military deployed or serving overseas.  Or perhaps you’ll be moved to make a donation and let the charity decide how best to help.  What a great way to say “thanks” for the freedom and safety you enjoy each day here in America.  As a veteran (I served in the Navy) I know what it means to have support from folks back home.
