I give my deepest respect and gratitude today to these people who have sacrificed for our freedom:
All those who went to war and never came back
All those who went to war and came back physically scarred
All those who went to war and came back emotionally or mentally scarred
All those who are or were in the military who never had to go to war but who woke up every day knowing they could be called to war at any time
All of those who serve in the Canadian military somewhere today, whether at home or abroad
All those who are or were not in the military but who are the family members and friends of all those who are or were
I thank you for your service to our country. I respect and honor all you have sacrificed on our behalf.
