My Gratitude

I spent yesterday with friends and family memorializing a young naval officer who died in duty at the heartbreaking age of twenty four.

Every day in Annapolis, I see midshipmen running errands and jogging and ducking into restaurants. Very often I marvel at these kids, who have signed up to risk their lives in exchange for protecting mine.

Among a sea of Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force personnel yesterday, I felt extremely thankful for those who serve.

Thank you.
