Thank you so much for your service whether military, police, firefighter, EMT or legislator. Thank you for not breaking faith with those Heroes of Lexington, Concord, Bunker Hill, Saratoga and Valley Forge. Remember the first American Prisoners of War who died on British Hell Ships in Brooklyn Harbor during the Revolutionary War. Thank you for supporting our Constitution and the American Way of Life. Thank you for supporting our troops and our nation, state and community. We thank those who support the return of our MIAs and the burial of unclaimed remains of veterans with Military Honors.
To those who wore the uniform of our nation God bless you and your family for you have preserved the greatest gift of all and that is our cherished freedoms. As long as we have American fighting men and women no one will ever take our freedoms away. Many tyrants have tried to enslave the free world and destroy our way of life. There are those untold millions of American G.I. Joes and Janes who raised their right hands and went on to defeat the evil demonic enemies of mankind. Hitler, Tojo, Saddam, Osama and a cast of others are history. A sign at a U.S. Air Force SAC Base in our frozen north says it best, "The Price Of Liberty Is Eternal Vigilance." We must continue to be "Second to None."
