Thanksgiving for the Military

It’s Thanksgiving in America, and Americans certainly have a lot of reasons to give thanks.  Although you may dream of a plump turkey and pumpkin pie, the classic cuisine is just a fraction of this holiday.  After all, this day allows us to do so much more than eat poultry.  This day also gives us the opportunity to show our gratitude for those who make this holiday possible: our soldiers and veterans.

 

Celebrating Thanksgiving certainly would be different without the brave men and women who defend our country.  In fact, without them, there probably wouldn’t be any celebration at all.  This Thanksgiving, ask yourself how your holiday would be different without them.  What would your country become if you suddenly didn’t have brave souls willing to leave their homes to protect yours?

Remember, your freedom comes at a price.  The men and women who serve – these heroes who fight for your freedom – are the ones paying that price.  For some, it’s cost them their health, their lives, their opportunity to celebrate the way you are now.  This year, as you’re gathered around the dinner table counting your many blessings, make sure that our heroes, past and present, are in your thoughts.

Don’t forget to thank them this Thanksgiving.
