Dear soldier, I am writing today in hopes this reaches your eyes and heart. I am so very grateful for everything you have chosen to sacrifice for my freedom. I can only guess, not even imagine what war looks like. You are with me when I wake up, while I work, while I serve my family, friends and community. I hope this letter reaches you and gives you a warm hug in knowing I am blessed because of you. With my whole heart thank you for being a light and watching out for those who cannot look out for themselves. You are heroes, and I aspire to your greatness!
