Just want to give a big thanks to all the men and women who serve and who have served our country. Military, Medical, Fire, Police, and everyone else who is in public safety.

To everyone here at home, you do a good job and stay safe! Thank you for what you do and God bless.
To all of our military men and women overseas, thank you for what you do. Stay safe and God bless you and your families for what you do.

A lot of people don’t understand what it is like to have a close friend or family member in this profession. I have a few friends in the military and I work in public safety so I know quite a few people here at home that serve. I don’t know what it is like to go to bed and not know if your loved one is going to come home at the end of their shift. I don’t know what it’s like to go to sleep and wonder if you will wake up with a knock on your door with someone telling you your loved one will not be returning home from their military duties. I couldn’t imagine to have these worries daily. So if you know someone who serves in the military or in public safety here at home, say thank you. Tell them thanks for what they do. Smile. Give a handshake or even a hug. It goes a long way and lets these heroes know that we are behind them and support them. On the same hand, if you know a family member of someone that serves, they too deserve a thank you, smile, handshake, or/and hug. These are the “behind the scenes heroes”.

So thank you. Thank you to all who serve and thank you to all who stand behind the ones who serve. To my friends who serve us here at home and to the ones who serve us in other countries, thank you. To the families that wonder each day if they will receive that call, thank you.

Thank you for being a hero,
