To the children of the United States Military,
President Bush and I are very proud of your family members who are serving in America’s armed forces. At this difficult time, every American is especially grateful to your loved ones for protecting our country and defending freedom.
We know being apart from the people you love is not easy. Remember that people all over the country care about you and your family.
President Bush and I send you our very best wishes and our prayers for the safe return of the people you love.
With warmest thoughts,
