Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
I want to give a big thank you to all of you who have served in our military. Thank you for protecting my freedoms and the freedoms of our country. Thank you for the sacrifices you made and for your willingness to play an active role in defending our country. May this day be extra special for you!
I want to personally thank the men and women in my family who have served in the military. My dad served in the army before I was born. He was drafted right out of high school for the Vietnam War. Thankfully, the war was over before he would have to join it. My uncles, however, served in that war. Thank you Joseph Kirzeder and Joel San Filippo. Thank you to my cousins Giovanni, Robert, AJ, Cody, and Kara for your service! And thank you to my brother Bart who is currently serving in the army. He just returned from a mission overseas a few months ago.
Thank you to all our soldiers and thank you to all your families who have also made sacrifices! I’m so appreciative of my continued freedom in this country and pray that it will be protected for many years to come!
