Thanksgiving is a time to appreciate family, friends and be thankful for the freedoms we enjoy. Today, thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen are deployed around the world fighting the Global War on Terrorism. These comrades in arms have dedicated their lives to preserving the freedoms we hold dear, and to help open the doors of democracy. They follow in the footsteps of generations before them who were committed to preserving our freedom and defending peace around the world.

Thanksgiving is an opportunity to reflect on these freedoms and the many blessings we enjoy because of the selfless dedication and commitment of our service men and women. Each of us should take time to pause and remember those carrying our wartime mission banner and who will not be home with family, friends and loved ones.

Air Force Space Command has 749 members deployed in support of vital military operations around the world. However, we must also give thanks for those serving at home. From the security forces members patrolling the vast missile fields in the northern plains to the space operations crews controlling our Nation’s satellites, you are the reason for the success in what space brings to the fight. Thanks to each of you for making Air Force Space Command the world’s best space and missile force.

Beccy and I thank you for your hard work and wish you and your families all the best for a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
