Home For Thanksgiving
This past week saw the return of the deployed submarines USS Alexandria (SSN 757) and USS Albany (SSN 753) (pictured below) to their homeports in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
I'm thankful for their safe return from war, but on this day I'm especially thankful for the men who remain on the front lines while we celebrate safely in our homes; thankful that they give of themselves on and under the oceans, in the air, or in far-off lands. I'm also thankful for their families who wait patiently for their return -- your support for these brave men and women is what gives them the strength to continue.
To you and yours from me and mine -- Happy Thanksgiving!
