A Salute To Our Service, Fire & Police Personnel - December 2016  

OUR ARMED FORCES,
  POLICE PERSONNEL
and FIREFIGHTERS


As we enter this holiday season, a time when we invariably get caught up in the hustle and bustle of closing one chapter and opening another in our book of life, let us pause and reflect a bit, on our families, friends, acquaintances and even those we've never  met or known.  Every time you pass a member of our  armed forces, a policeman or fireman, remember that they have all taken an oath to defend and protect you and yours. A simple "thank you for your service" goes a long way and crosses all barriers.


To those, from Bunker Hill to Afghanistan, who gave their lives and rest, in places known only to their Creator, and in countless cemeteries around this world, thank you.


To those who risk their lives daily to protect us from the ravages of fire and disasters, thank you.


To those who patrol our streets and neighborhoods, enforcing our laws, to keep us safe, thank you.


To those who protect or rights and freedom, wherever you may be, thank you.
