Thankful for: Service to Nation

Today, I join our Nation in gathering together with family and loved ones for Thanksgiving dinner. While turkey and stuffing will be served, the sights and sounds will be different from that of many Americans as I spend the holiday with Patrol Forces Southwest Asia in Manama, Bahrain. There is no better place to express my thanks for all those who place Service before self than sitting alongside those defending our country overseas.

This year, for my family, Thanksgiving strikes a deeper chord than ever before. While historical Thanksgiving celebrations focus on the abundance of the harvest, this year we celebrate the abundance of wellness and good health of our loved ones, for we learned the hard way that these things are not a given.
