Due to your extraordinary service we all have a gift, we call freedom.
Last year I attended and helped with the Habitat for Humanity's Speaking of Sweat Equity Series where the Lone Survivor himself, Marcus Luttrell, spoke. Our family had read the bestselling book, saw the blockbuster movie, and because we worked on the event, we got to take a picture with Mr. Luttrell and shake his hand.
He spoke about what he endured and the lives of his fellow Navy SEALS who gave the ultimate sacrifice while on a mission. I was awestruck of this true American hero. I still get the chills remembering his account of the pain and determination that these men endured.
A simple "Thank You" certainly isn't enough. But, please know that I am forever grateful!
