San Diego, CA - - - As Americans all across the country celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, Presidential candidate, and current Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, Congressman Duncan Hunter wanted to remind our nation to also remember to thank our men and women in uniform for their sacrifice and service:
“For the past six years, our nation has been involved in a long battle against those who seek to destroy us. Many brave Americans have fallen during this time, and more than a million have served their country in the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Their sacrifice for our nation is added to the long and distinguished list of those who served their country in battlefields all across the world from Bunker Hill to Gettysburg, from Bellawood to Normandy, from Chosin Reservoir to Khe Sanh, from the rooftops of Fallujah to Kabul, Mosul, Tikrit, and a thousand other places of danger.
“On this Thanksgiving, we express our gratitude to God, for not only giving us this blessed land of freedom, but also the brave men and women willing to leave the security of their homes and families to protect us while we are in our homes with our families.
“On this Thanksgiving Day, the Hunter family will also give thanks for another special blessing, the return of Marine Captain Duncan D. Hunter from Afghanistan. We welcome him home with open arms and a thankful heart. May God bless those who serve and may God continue to bless America.”
