From the time you were born, we - your family vowed to love, support , encourage, provide, and protect you. Now you are protecting us and so many others. It is with great pride and tremendous gratitude that we say, “Thank You!” It is such an honor and privilege to see what we poured into you now being poured back into us. To watch you grow into the young man you are today - strong, courageous, respectable, ambitious - has truly been a blessing. Your dream of becoming a soldier has finally come true. You’ve achieved another one of your goals. You are a U.S. soldier, but most importantly, you’re OUR soldier. As you stand at attention, just know that you have your entire family standing with you … still providing love, support, encouragement, and protection. May God continue to bless, protect, and keep you always.
With love, hugs, and kisses,
