To the Men and Women who are serving in our military forces...
Thank you, and may God bless and keep you safe... Your sacrifice is not unknown nor forgotten. Though many do not support the war, we support YOU, our loyal American troops.... We pray for peace and a quick return of all of you safely back to your homes and loved ones...
Warmest regards,
William L. Marinucci
