Let us never forget that it is because of the dedication, honor and sacrifice of men and women like Marc Lee that we have the freedom to live the lives we choose, and to speak our minds without fear of government reprisal.
We have had the great honor of getting to know Marc's mom, Debbie Lee, who chose to become Marc's voice and continue spreading his message that our troops believe in their mission and believe that what they're doing is helping to make our world a better place.
We first learned of this letter when Debbie read it to us after a meeting of several troop-support organizations, and we have to admit, we had tears streaming down our face long before Debbie's voice broke, on the P.S. Marc Lee's first sentence is especially poignant now. We are grateful that Debbie granted us permission to share Marc's letter with you.
Thank you, Marc Lee, and thank you, Debbie. You also have given the ultimate sacrifice. A parent can be asked no greater sacrifice than to give up one of their children. We admire you for the grace and dignity with which you honor Marc's service, and your dedication to thanking those currently serving.
Debbie Lee traveled to Iraq over the Christmas holidays to personally express her gratitude (and yours) to our men and women in uniform. She donned body armor and a kevlar helmet to walk the streets where Marc took his last steps. What a remarkable woman. Any wonder where Marc Lee got his courage?
Debbie reminds us that Marc's name means "Mighty Warrior." I'd say he lived up to his name, wouldn't you?
Take a moment to watch and listen to Debbie's beautiful Memorial Day tribute to her son.
And thank you to each and every member of our armed forces, all of whom contribute to our freedom. We hold you in our thoughts and pray for your safe return to your families. Thank you for your service, and for the support of and sacrifice made by your families that enables you to serve.
As we celebrate our freedom this 4th of July Independence Day, we remember and appreciate your service.
