I just want to offer my appreciation on this day for all the men and women who have and are still serving our nation in the Armed Forces. It is your courage and strength that keep me and my family safe. Your sacrifice is not forgotten by me and it is not taken lightly, you spend time away from your families and in harms way. These sacrifices should never be forgotten and certainly never taken lightly.
I fear that the talk here in the State's is offensive to those who are currently serving and those who have served in the past. I want you to know that although the liberal elites who control most of the media may not celebrate your work, many of us are deeply thankful.
So on this Independence Day, thank you.
