Thank you, ladies and gentlemen:

You know who I am speaking to. You stood up when it was needed and did what had to be done. You sacrificed yourselves for the country….Or maybe were just unlucky…but you were there…doing what had to be done……maybe for a wife, or girlfriend, husband or boyfriend. Parents, Kids…. I dunno.

It really doesn’t matter why. You just did. Gave it all. Died in the service of your country.

So thank you.

I appreciate your sacrifice.

I remember. I hope others do.

If they have internet wherever you ended up…Heaven or not, you might be reading this. If not, I hope someone tells you.

Not everyone thinks this day is just the end of a long weekend.

Some of us remember.

So, to you who DIDN’T come home,,,,,Thank you.
