Community: Military make many sacrifices

I am writing this letter to thank all men and women in all branches of the military.

Who is the military? My spouse, dad, and brother. My co-workerÂ’s daughter, sister, and mother. A deceased uncle, father-in-law, and grandfather. A person whose job it is to put their life before mine, without question, when ordered to do so. A person having to leave their family, knowing they may never see them again. A person who knows their job is not liked by many, but is still willing to give their all to protect us.

No words can accurately express my gratitude for the military.
