To every young woman who decides to ignore the stereotypes and put on fatigues
Every shot gun wedding the night before you leave
Every letter a young woman writes to her love countries away and every breath that I held hoping to get one in return
To every father who leaves their children to fight for our freedom.
For every Skype conversation that happens between a mother and child, father and son, every email written,
For every sacrifice that is made fighting for our freedom,
Not just today,
Not just tomorrow,
To the brave men and women, past present and future who bravely sign a piece of paper to fight for our freedom,
Who are willing to sacrifice their lives for us,
There are no words to express how grateful, humbled and honored I am to be call you grandpa, uncle, family and friend.
