Question Is there a way to say thank you???

I don't think there is enough time to say how grateful I am to the people who served our country. Its immpossible to express.
This is a poem I found, and I thought it was pretty nice.

If today I don't have to speak German and live under the third reich... Thank you America

If today I don't have to speak Russian and live under that red flag... Thank you America

If today my wife doesn't have to hide her face and she can live like a woman... Thank you America

If today I can drink a beer and celebrate life with no fear... Thank you America

If today I can choose my own God... Thank you America

If today I can say what I think without looking behind my back... Thank you America

If today I can be the owner of my present and dream about my future... Thank you America

If today I am a free man in a free Country... I want to say one more time...

Thank you America

It may be an old cliche but it is so true. The human language cannot express the gratitude I feel and the lump that climbs from my heart to my throat whenever I think of you...the American Vet.

May God hold you close to his heart and keep you safe in the palm of his hand.

Thank you and know that even though we never met, we are family.
Okay, you cant move in or anything...and the fridge is off limits! But I do love you all the same.
?Whatever else history may say about me when I?m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty?s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity?s arm steadying your way.?
