Today is your day.
For every ribbon you wear there was courage. For every rank you achieved, there was sacrifice. For every mission you completed, there was commitment. You have given half of your life to protect our land and secure our freedom. You serve with your heart and your knowledge to safeguard our future. I am so proud of you. You are our son’s hero.
May you always have fair winds and following seas. May you always touch down safe and return home to us.
To all who have served, thank you. May your kindness never be forgotten.
