Commander's Message: Thanksgiving Safety Briefing
Reported By LTC J.LaFlash (edited)
The weather has gotten colder, and the days shorter. The leaves have changed and fallen from their branches. For us, late November is more than a seasonal change: It is a time for spending with Family and Friends
Many, however, are not so fortunate as to spend time with their Families. This Thanksgiving Day, I ask each of you to remember the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen separated from their loved ones and pray for their safe return. Their sacrifice makes it possible for others to know freedom from oppression and fear and instills hope for the future. For the Families with loved ones deployed, the holiday can be challenging. Thanksgiving is about Family and our community is a Family.
I think it is worth taking a moment to express some gratitude and reflect on this day, which was set aside by our Nation to reflect and be grateful for the freedom, and opportunity we have here. As John F. Kennedy said, “We must find the time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
Wherever you are, if you are at home, with family, traveling, or just enjoying something you take pleasure and find peace in, Command Staff and I wish you the very best this thanksgiving and are grateful for all you do serving without our unit! And of course "If you drive don't drink, if you drink don't drive and if you drink, don't drink alone!"
