Thank you, veterans!

Happy Veteran's Day!
I am so thankful for the men and women who have served in the armed forces. They have given up so much to protect and defend the United States of America, and to fight so that others can have the freedoms that we so often take for granted.
We have the freedom to make our own decisions about what kind of life we want to live. We can decide what kind of job to have, how much education we want, where we want to live. We have the freedom to move around our great country whenever we want. We have the freedom to decide how many children to have, what books we want to read, what religion we want to participate in. We have the freedom to vote and have a say in our government.
There is no greater country in the world than the USA.
Thanks again, veterans and your families, for continuing to stand on the line to preserve my freedom and the freedom of the United States of America.
