I wanted to take this opportunity to salute our Veterans and let them know how much we appreciate their service to our nation.
Our freedom is made stronger every day by those brave men and women who defend our nation and we are eternally grateful for their service.
On a personal note, I thank my in laws, Cols Hasmukh and Ranjan Parekh for their dedicated service in the United States Air Force, and my Grandfather, Major S. V. Rao, a World War II veteran, who fought the Japanese in Burma, serving with distinction in the Indian army.
Thanks again for your service and for protecting each American and ensuring that a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall never perish from the earth. (President Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg address)
