Today we pause to honor and remember our nation’s war veterans. How do you properly thank those who volunteered to stand in the gap between freedom and tyranny; who chose selflessly to risk life and limb to secure and preserve liberty for their countrymen; who still bear and will forever bear the scars of their service? I don’t know. But I do know that I am deeply and eternally grateful to our veterans.
To all of our nation’s war veterans from all of us at Texas Public Policy Action, thank you. Thank you for serving, for standing in the gap, for having the courage to face the worst that humanity has to offer in order to preserve for future generations the best that humanity has to offer. Contrary to the cynics who say we no longer have heroes, I point to you and say that we have heroes in abundance. Thank you!
