The end of 2017 is not far away, along with the hustle and bustle of preparing Thanksgiving meals, shopping for the perfect Christmas gifts, and celebrating the New Year. Yet before the year end rush, I think it is important to stop and remember what makes the lives we enjoy in the Unites States of America possible.
Today is November 11th, a day set aside each year to remember those among us who have volunteered to serve the greater good of our nation and its people by service as part of our armed forces. This special group of people risk their lives in order to provide the rest of the United States of America with a freedom that is often taken for granted.
Whether today is your first day of service, or you’ve long since retired, I’d like to thank each and every veteran. On behalf of our company, thank you for protecting our country where we have the opportunity to create a thriving and growing business.
Veterans deserve our respect, not only because of what they have done, but what they continue to do for our country. I’m proud of the fact that a significant percentage of our team is comprised of veterans. The strength, discipline, and values they bring continue to serve as an inspiration to us all, in good times and bad.
Thank you for your service.
