Here’s to our predecessors. You may be an uber driver today. You may be in Valhalla. But I just want to say, even though the torch has been passed on, and your duty relinquished, thank you. Thank you for standing for us. Not just necessarily for America, but for the brothers and sisters in arms who stand after you. We don’t know the hours you’ve spent “standing by.” We don’t know the troubles you’ve experienced whilst on watch. However without you, we would have nothing to stand upon. No matter how small. For if it wasn’t you, then who did stand?
To our vets – both young and long forgotten, a toast. Because freedom isn’t free. And whereas duty has no friend, at least you know we’ve been waiting earnestly to take the torch from you so that you may rest. Happy independence day.
