"Never in the face of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few." ~ Winston Churchill
Dear Families of all the brave men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces,
In his Official Proclamation designating November 2010 as Military Family Month, President Obama said:
We owe each day of security and freedom that we enjoy to the members of our Armed Forces and their families. Behind our brave service men and women, there are family members and loved ones who share in their sacrifice and provide unending support. During Military Family Month, we celebrate the exceptional contributions of our military families, and we affirm our commitments to these selfless individuals who exemplify the highest principles of our Nation.
Across America, military families inspire us all with their courage, strength, and deep devotion to our country. They endure the challenges of multiple deployments and moves, spend holidays and life milestones apart; juggle everyday tasks while a spouse, parent, son, or daughter is in harm’s way; and honor the service of their loved ones and the memory of those lost.
Our deepest thanks for everything you do on our behalf! We continue to pray for the safe return of your loved ones, and hold you in our thoughts always.
