I'd like to buy you a drink and talk about basketball, or woodworking, or wine, or poetry, or any damn thing really.
I am humbled to listen to you and hear about your experiences. Thank you for sharing.
I promise not to say "Thank you for your service". It's a bullshit saying for people who don't know how to feel better about themselves. Instead, I will look you in the eye, give you a nod, and just interact with you like a person. What you went through sucks. It changed you. But I won't make that be the only thing that defines you.
I hope you are proud to represent the USA. No one can remove the images, memories or actions that happened. I hope you have support, love and direction in your life both in and out of the military.
Grandpa Ronny, Thank you for being my hero and sacrificing your life for this country. I miss you and love you so much.
I wonder what your stance on passivism is now that you have been there yourself.
Greetings Veteran Sister / Brother, I feel so sad for you, for us all, for my brother who was in Vietnam. I think of you every day — even before seeing this film.
Thank you for your sacrifice. Reach out to your brothers and sisters. Support each other because that's what you deserve.
I can only regret those choices I do not yet understand, and for those regrets that remain, I trust a greater perspective may yet relieve their hold upon me. The same, I believe, is true for you. The past brought each of us to Now, but does not define us. Only this instant may do that, of which the choice is open. I trust your strength.
The hardships you have faced can't be simplified or rationalized, but I want you to know how much I appreciate your sacrifice. May the universe align with your true purpose on Earth.
You are appreciated and loved! Thank you for your sacrifices! You are never alone, we all stand behind you! Thank you.
You all have served us, I would like to serve you. I am looking forward to helping veteran students as part of my career in higher education. You are valid and worthy of the time, energy and assistance. Thank you.
You are incredible! Words do not even exist for how great of a person you are. I want to say THANK YOU! But, that is still not enough. You are not alone, your sacrifices do not go unnoticed. Stay strong, keep fighting. We support you & love you!
You are loved. Now and Always. ( I made a film called "Ace Ventura" + your courage makes me want to shout: "Arighty Then!!!" with deep appreciation)
No one should have to experience what you have nor to be "used" as you have. I am so sorry for the pain you have suffered on all our behalves. It is the rest of us who need to be forgiven, not you.
In healing yourself, you also help all those whose lives you touch heal. This, I believe, is your ultimate act of service. Thank you so much for that ultimate gift to yourself and others.
Thank you for signing a blank check to protect our beautiful country. And for some of you, thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice; your courage and selflessness will not be forgotten. God bless.
I can't begin to imagine what it would be like to serve overseas. I am humbled by what you do for our country and the sacrifices you make. I hope that when you return our country will treat you with the dignity & respect you deserve and help you with your needs. Thank you + may you have peace.
May you find comfort on your journey & delight in the smallest joys.
Thank you for all you & your family have given.
