Frontier 6 & 7 Send – Thanksgiving Message
We celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November as a time to gather with our families, reflect on our blessings, and give thanks for each other and our great nation. It is also a time to give thanks to those service members who have protected our security and freedom.
We have faced many challenges during the past year as we continue to contend with a global pandemic, but together we have preserved and met every requirement with skill and professionalism. Like those who came before us, it is essential to remember that during difficult times it is even more important to take stock in the things that we have to be thankful for.
Please know that each of you – Soldiers, Army Civilian Professionals, and Family members – are important to our Army and to our Nation, and that we remain thankful to you for your service and your sacrifice. We hope this Thanksgiving holiday will be a time for thanks, reflection, and renewal for everyone. We give thanks to our Army Family, both at home and abroad, and our fellow Soldiers past and present. Give thanks for their continued service and commitment to the Army and the United States of America.
The Martin and Helton family wish you and your families a safe, healthy and Happy Thanksgiving!
