“Enjoy your long weekend” said the Vice President of the United States.
And yes, I want you to enjoy your long weekend. However, we need to remember why we have this long weekend.
To our service men and women who are currently serving: thank you.
To our service men and women who served: thank you.
To our service men and women who are no longer with us: thank you.
To the families of the men and women who served: thank you.
We have a long weekend because of the brave men and women fought for our freedom and won. We have a long weekend because there are many lives who are not here to celebrate because they sacrificed their life for our freedom.
Today, I want to thank every man and woman who has served. Because without you, this would not be a long weekend and this would not be America.
From the bottom of my heart, I truly appreciate the sacrifice you gave for my freedom. Thank you.
