Happy Thanskgiving. As you sit down to your relaxing Thanksgiving meal with family, some of you may have one missing who is serving abroad, maybe in harms way this year. Well, after my son served in Iraq over a holiday season I never forget to say thank you quietly for these brave individuals who put their lives at risk so we may be safe and celebrate whilst they frankly are suffering, not that they see it that way. 

They will often be eating rations in a forward operating base, or command post somewhere, maybe they might get a special delivery of Turkey dinner, but they don't expect it. Sometimes they are actually in action. They are just doing their job and looking out for each other making sure they all come home.

So, when you are being grateful remember all the men and women serving in our Armed Forces spread around the world. I am thankful my guy is home with his new daughter and wife and no longer serving.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Nick... what a wonderful reminder about our military forces... often when someone is not seen it's easy to forget.

On this Thanksgiving, may God continue to Bless all who serve and the families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our liberty and American heritage. Also remember the peacekeepers and first responders that provide help to those in need and finally, God Bless the USA.  Happy Thanksgiving, in God we trust.

Nina Hollander always remember Jeremy eating in some place odd for the holidays when he was in action, so always make me think of those who are on duty.

Brian England totally agree with you.

Wonderful prayer Kimo Jarrett thank you. Yes, first responders also included.

James Dray it is a good feeling having him home and out of harm's way.

Joan Cox they need those prayers.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® it is an odd feeling when they are not at home but serving abroad. We have several photos of dinners served in the field.

Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl and they should not be forgotten, but out of sight out of mind for many people.

A good thing to do and usually received very well, Will Hamm
