Many thanks to my many veteran family and friends, and to those still serving today, and my heart goes out to those we have lost in conflict and in peace. Without you, we would not be here to give you thanks today.
It’s easy to think “YAY! This service person survived!” and assume that everything is okay. I always wish that, but for many the trauma, PTSD, as well as physical harm will stay with them for their entire lives.
