Veterans Day Message  

Every year our nation comes together, on a single day, to recognize the sacrifices made by our military veterans. Across the country celebrations, recognition ceremonies, and parades occur in an effort to in some small way recognize all that they have done to secure our freedoms.

As a combat veteran myself, I understand the sacrifices that come with wearing the uniform. As a commander, I saw not only the sacrifices of my troops, but of their families. Parents, siblings, spouses, and children keeping the home fire burning so that our troops can focus on their mission so that they can return home safely.

Since the first days of the American Revolution right up to today men and women of this nation have put aside their personal needs to step up and serve their country. They have endured many hardships, suffered severe injury, and many have died so that we can enjoy the freedoms that come from being a citizen of the United States.

So, on this day of remembrance, I want to thank you for your service to all those that have ever donned the uniform of a branch of our armed forces. Your commitment to freedom and service to your nation have earned you the respect of your fellow citizens. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.

Yours in Service,
Mike Prendergast
