I want to start this entry on military moves with a special note of gratitude. If you or a member of your family is serving, or has served, in defense of our nation, we honor your service. If you or a member of your family has sustained injury as a result of service, especially if someone you love has given his or her life, I am humbled. Your sacrifice only steels my will to promote the cause of peace and see an end to conflict.
