A time to stop and give thanks to our hardworking military men & women, who sacrifice so much for our freedom…

With all my heart I give my thanks,

to those in uniform regardless of ranks.

You serve our country and serve it well,

with humble hearts your stories tell.

So as I rest my weary eyes,

while freedom rings our flag still flies.

You give your all, do what you must,

with God we live and God we trust.


*Thank you once again to David Quarto, Retired Lieutenant, Fairfax County (VA) Sheriff’s Office, for sharing his perfect photograph with us, and to Greg Yakubik, Lance Corporal, U.S. Marine Corps, for sharing this beautiful prayer.
