To all the men and women in the armed forces, who risk their own lives first to protect others, who stand under the sun, in the rain, face the enemies, fight fierce battles and even pay the ultimate price to keep the rest of us safe, thank you!
Beyond laying the wreath, may our government do better for you, for your families and all that matters to you.
