To the men and women of all colors, creeds, races, and religions, I say thank you. Thank you for your sacrifice, resulting in physical wounds we can see and emotional wounds we can not see. Thank you for protecting us — your family, loved ones, friends, and all Americans. Thank you for your courage and bravery. Most of us will never have to face the horrors of war that give true meaning to those words: courage and bravery. And so, for your selfless service to our country, I can only offer two other words that I realize are woefully inadequate. Thank you.
