Offering thanks to those who serve.
We thank the men and women who celebrate
the holidays so far away from home,
in spite of personal forfeiture
required to fulfill their sacred charge.

We thank them for their dedication
as they slog up mounts and ride the waves,
fly through storms to deliver goods
in order to keep our nation free.

From Normandy Beach to Desert Storm,
from Iwo Jima to Isis Caliphate,
some fought and paid a heavy price.
We thank them for their sacrifice.
