To all members of our armed forces, past and present, and to their families…Thank you.
I just want to take a moment to say Thank You to the men and women who serve in the United States military–past and present. Every single American owes you their gratitude for your selfless service to our country.
However, it’s not just our country you’re helping.
Right now hundreds of U.S. soldiers are in the Philippines providing aid to the hundreds of thousands of residents who have been impacted by the devastating typhoon. You put your lives on the line and spend countless hours away from your own loved ones, so that you can help other families.
I’ll keep you in my prayers and whenever I see a man or woman in uniform, I will always take the time to personally express my thanks.
