Thankful for… Veterans

November 11th, 2011

Today, take a moment to reflect on how good you have it – and why.

One of the reasons we live in a strong, free society is that many of our nation’s men and women have made incredible sacrifices to keep us safe from threats abroad. In particular, Oregon’s National Guard units have been among the most active in the nation in our current conflagrations in the Middle East. Even as the President issues orders to bring troops home from Iraq, that does not end the sacrifices they and their families make.

We make no comment on the politics of the situation. But to the men and women who have served, we say:  Thank you.

If you’re interested in doing more for our service men and women overseas, consider incorporating it into your holiday event plans. Call us to ask us about Operation Care Kit, offered by our affiliate Run Brain Run… and show your thanks in a very personal way.
