My thoughts are with the family and friends of Mr. Sturdevant at this time of loss. Please accept my deepest condolences and my eternal gratitude for his service to our nation.
Please accept our condolences on the death of your loved one. Their service and sacrifice, as well as the family's support are very greatly appreciated. When one joins the military, they become a member of a brotherhood. Less than one percent of the US population are currently serving in the military and only seven percent of the US population are either veterans or part of the active military. These heroic men and women are bonded forever.
Our defenders of freedom were compelled to serve for many honorable reasons. Some left their homes, families and friends and went halfway around the world. They were willing to sacrifice their lives so that we could all be free. How fortunate for all of us that while we rest and sleep some brave warrior risks it all so we can sleep in peace. It takes a special man or woman to sacrifice their comfort and safety for their country. We would not be living the way we do now if it weren't for brave men and women who serve and risk their lives for our freedom and safety. Freedom is a right ultimately defended by the sacrifice of America's servicemen and women. This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
We, the members of the Colorado Patriot Guard, so greatly appreciate the service of your loved one and it is a great honor for us to stand at their Service. We thank you for inviting us and we offer our thoughts and prayers.
