This week, I am most thankful for the men and women who make it their life’s work to protect our people and our country. This includes the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, and the people who run these branches, as well as those who work in the White House analyzing threats, making decisions, and doing their best to keep our country safe. But my gratitude extends even further. I am also so thankful for all of the police, fire fighters, security guards, paramedics, and other people of those categories who risk their lives every day to help us and keep us protected. No matter how small the job may seem, these people put their lives on the line for ours. And that is something that should not go unnoticed.
