With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us we all should take time to reflect on those things that we are thankful for in our lives.

My family and I are most thankful for the opportunity to serve here at Whiteman Air Force Base with all the great American's that make Team Whiteman so valuable to our nation's defense. Without a doubt, the warriors of Team Whiteman are making a positive and lasting difference all around the world.

You are motivated, dedicated and supremely effective at all you do each and every day. But we can never forget that we all are supported by family and friends that stand solidly with us despite the sacrifices they must make to do so.

So this Thanksgiving, let us take time to celebrate and thank our family and friends. Let us also keep in our prayers and thoughts our brothers and sisters who are deployed and in harms way. Have a wonderful and safe holiday!
