Dear Veteran George,
Thank you for fighting for our country. Thank you for letting us have the life we have. I am sure that it was very sad, what you had to see. You sacrificed your life, just so we could have freedom. It think it was very nice what you did. I bet it was very hard saying goodbye and not knowing if that was the last goodbye. Every day, we say the pledge and I think of what you had to go through. You fought for our flag and I thank you for doing that.
