Happy Thanksgiving! I'm looking forward to spending it with family and friends. I'm thankful for the past year, the people in my life and the opportunity to help others through a difficult time.

This morning I received an email from Michele Obama regarding letting our servicemembers know how grateful we are for everthing that they do. The Obamas have partnered with the USO to create a program called Thanks From Everywhere. Visit JoiningForces.gov/Thanks and you can write a quick note that troops and veterans all over the world will be able to see. 

At a time we are focused on gratitude, please take a moment to share with those who have offered so much to our country.
