Thank You, Veterans & Military Members

Strong and courageous.

Our active duty military members and veterans have given their all to protect the freedoms that we Americans take for granted.

On this day, please thank military members, veterans, and family members for the sacrifices that they have made in order to preserve the freedoms that were so hard won.

And as you think on this day, say a prayer for them.

The LORD bless you and keep you;
the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26

Thank you to all service members, veterans, and their families!
