Thank You, Soldiers

How do you tell a loved one who serves in the military how much they mean to you?  How can you possibly thank them for the selfless sacrifices they make for you and for their country.  The truth is that no one really can.  What our brave men and women soldiers go through is enough to make anyone proud.  They spend months and years of their lives in vigorous training to be the best at what they do.  The United States military is a force to be reckoned with.  In a world of terror and violence, there are unsung heroes every day in the military who do not get the credit they deserve.  There are threats to our country that are squashed because of our brave men and women.  Those serving in the Army, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard & Navy are out there risking it all so that we can have the precious gift of freedom. us_casket

When you stop and think about it, it truly is amazing.  The sad part is that there are many in this great country who take for granted the freedoms that are given to them because of our military.  There are those who have the right to speak or protest because of what the military does for our freedom.  It’s a very thankless job.  And a good soldier knows it.  He is not looking for glory or accolades.  He serves because it is his duty.

Well, I just want to say thank you.  Thank you to all the brave men and women who fight for this country and lay down their lives for our protection.  Thank you to those who go where civilians would not dare.  Thank for being brave and thank you for being strong.

There are many ways to try to say thank you to your soldier.  You can tell them thank you.  You can write them cards, give them a hug, or send them an instant message or email.  You can buy them gifts.  Sure, there are all kinds of military gifts out there.  We personally think our military rings make great gifts, because they are a constant reminder of a way for you to say thank you to your soldier.  But probably the best thank you that you can give a soldier is to enjoy your freedom.  Live out life to the most, and don’t take for granted the sacrifices our brave men and women have made.
