A heartfelt thank you to our Veterans!
For all you do ... allowing us to do what we do!

A big thank you to all of our military men and women out there. Being the son of a military dad growing up, it gave me a strong appreciation for the sacrifices those who choose to serve our country have to make. Those who have served in wars have gone even further and are the ultimate teammates and champions!

As the proud grandson of a military family that served both on sea and on land during WWII, Veterans Day is an important occasion to honor, support and remember our military personnel both past and present. Bless our troops for their commitment and sacrifice to our great nation, and never forget. R.I.P JHR II and LVW.
I'd like to give a huge thank you to all US Veterans. We all appreciate the incredible sacrifices you have made to defend our freedom and the devotion you've shown to our country. We are truly thankful and proud of your efforts!
I want to thank all the men and women who so bravely fought and serviced our great nation. I would like to recognize PFC Arturo E. Rodriguez of Bellflower, California. Arturo fought alongside my best friend and Penn State teammate Gil Pearsall III in Paktika, Afghanistan. RIP A.E.G.
I want to thank ALL veterans for the selfless sacrifices you've made to make us safe at home. You all are a true inspiration and we are beyond thankful for all that you've done and continue to do!
