Dear [Recipients Name],

Thank you so much for defending our country.

You risk your life for us and sacrifice a lot for us. We can go to work and school all because you are out there fighting for us. You are a great hero, and words will barely be enough to express how much we appreciate your sacrifice. You are so strong and selfless ? values you only find in a few special people and you are among them.

Thank you so much and take care of yourself.
