"We know we ask a lot of you and we thank you and your families for the sacrifices you make. What you do matters, you make a difference in the world."

"For those of you who can't be with your families due to mission necessities or because you're in deployed environments, just want to let you know we'll be thinking about you."

"Please be safe, take care of yourselves and your families. We need you all back 100%. Your nation needs you now more than ever."
