He stood in the heat of the desert, keeping watch over our freedom.
She stood on the bow of a ship, keeping watch over our freedom.
They crept through the jungle, keeping watch over our freedom.
She worked furiously in a medical tent, keeping watch over our freedom.
He repaired a plane in the pouring rain, keeping watch over our freedom.
They sat around a table, praying for their loved one that crossed the ocean, keeping watch over our freedom.
Countless others have performed countless tasks, keeping watch over our freedom.
These are the courageous, the fearless, the self-sacrificing faces of our veterans and their families. They serve so that we may be free.
Words alone cannot convey my gratitude for our veterans, their families and their sacrifices. Thank you for standing on the line so that I can enjoy my freedom.
I hope and pray that we remember our veterans not just today, but every day. May we never take for granted the blessing it is to call ourselves Americans. A blessing that is a gift from God, delivered by the blood, sweat and tears of our veterans and active duty personnel.

A beautiful tribute to our troops and their families!
Beautiful, and I join you in saying thank you to the men and women (and their families) who lost sleep so that we could find it. Thank you.
