Thanksgiving Day. A time for food, family, friends, and most importantly, giving thanks for the things that make life worth living.
Across the United States, millions of Americans will be bowing their heads over tables laden with food and thanking you, the veterans and active duty service members of the U.S. military. As the editor here at VA Benefit Blog, and a civilian, I’d like to do the same.
Thank you for putting your life on the line for this great country, so civilians at home can pursue their American dreams.
Thank you for sacrificing time with your family and loved ones to go abroad and work to keep America safe.
Thank you for being an example our nation’s kids can look up to, when they need to know what honor, valor and bravery look like.
Thank you for persevering in the face of enormous peril and against determined enemies to accomplish America’s missions overseas.
Thank you for making this blog possible. Without your honest comments, spirited debates, and dedicated readership, we couldn’t do what we strive to do every day, which is keeping you up to date on the benefits you’ve earned with your selfless service to our country.
And a special thanks to Levi Newman, the chief writer for VA Benefit Blog, who served his country honorably, and now works tirelessly to educate his fellow veterans on how to best take advantage of their benefits.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all, at home and abroad.
