Very few of us don't have a loved one who has been in the military. Father, sister, brother, uncle, cousin, wife— whoever it is, they make sacrifices every day. Here's how to show them your support.
"You are so brave and quiet, I forget you are suffering."
"Here's to the people who inspire us and don't even know it."
"Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome."
"We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives."
"Kind heart, fierce mind, brave spirit."
"Promise me you'll always remember: you're braver than you believe and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."
"Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever mad a difference in the world. A veteran doesn't have that problem."
"May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right."
"Home of the free, because of the brave."
"Hear me roar."
"Those who care about your recovery will find the angel among the demons. Others will find ways to empower your demons. Bravery is embracing the right choice."
"You wake up every morning to fight the same demons that left you so tired the night before, and that, my love, is bravery."
"Nothing takes more courage than putting yourself back together again."
"Don't be ashamed of your story, it will inspire others."
"All gave some, some gave all. Though we may now know them all, we owe them all. "
"Never let the fire dire inside of you. Never let your spirit be crushed. You are beautiful and strong, remember that."
