Thankful for our Servicemen
Nathan T. from Chesapeake, Virginia sent in this picture of him and his son. He writes, "There's nothing I'd rather be doing today than spending the day with my family, but duty calls, even on weekends. Attached is a photo of what I got to come home to today at the end of my 12-hour shift. I'm always greeted with smiles by my son Parker, and daughter Hailey. Nothing makes me happier than seeing their faces when I walk through the door."

Thank you for everything you do, Nathan. We hope you and all of our servicemen have a happy Thanksgiving.

Hi Ellen,

My wife and I got a phone call from a friend in Texas today while we were eating our Thanksgiving dinner. She had been on your facebook page and saw our photo on there. She said she was freaking out and couldn't believe we were featured. My wife and I were very surprised and so grateful you thought of us today. We were lucky enough to be together as a family today, but there are so many military families that won't be today. I'd like to help you thank all of our Service members for their support and for defending our country! Thank you all for your sacrifices and come home safe!!!!


Nathan, April, Hailey & Parker Torrey
