Lest we not forget, the men and women who continue to go to war and combat and who train tirelessly away from their families and friends to.
So before, in between, and after today's festivities, let's take time to remember with sadness, and pride, as Americans, the many souls who sacrificed their lives and continue to do so every day, and veterans who dedicated and continue to dedicate their time, energy, and attention for the love of their country, to help fight for our freedom.
Words of thanks go to all the men and women who commit themselves to protect our country, and for those especially who lost their lives in the war for freedom.
A special shout out to all of Sarah's grandfathers and Great Uncle who participated in wars doing various jobs from medic to enemy lines battle to keep our country protected and safe. And, even when the war was not won we know the effort to try was hard and intense.
My heart also goes out to the children, both young and old, whose lives were and still are impacted by their parent's bravery to fight for our country, and especially the time they have away from them in order to do so.

Today, let's memorialize, and honor, all who risked a great deal for our United States of America. Here are some special haiku I wrote, a drawing made by Sarah and a beautiful photo by Sarah's G-dfather and Uncle who lost a different battle -- to cancer. Let us commemorate and remember the commitment of so many and share our thanks and appreciation.
