    Sgt Thornhill
    I want to wish you a happy birthday from an old United States Marine. Please accept my sincerest thanks and untold appreciation for the gift that you have given to my family. I can not repay the cost of what you’ve paid for me or my family. I can only tell you that I do not let the sun set without putting my arms around my two young daughters and hold them tight. All the while I’m consciously telling myself that I owe this moment, this feeling of pure joy, this gift that has been shielded from the harms of the world to all the men and women like you that have paid for it with everything. I put my arms around them for all my brothers and sisters in service that can not put their arms around their own children each night. You are the reason I can do this and I will never forget nor be able to repay you for that gift.
    I as many of us former veterans suffer from extreme anxiety and at times deep depression. Anger, fear, frustration and confusion have caused me many years of questioning the fairness of life. I have learned that we are but links in a chain. The chain of life began long before us and will continue on for many thousands of years to come. And you have been chosen to be one of the strongest links that will hold all others together. You are a special. An especially chosen person for a purpose much higher than any of us can truly understand or recognize at this point in time. You have been chosen to become a part of something much bigger. Please be PROUD, as your contribution means EVERYTHING to so many. Many of which may never even realize it. But there will always be people who do and forever people will know.

    • Oh Henry! I cannot say anything more or anything more beautiful than what you have written! God bless you!

  3. Thank you so much for your valor, strength an courage. Words can’t thank you enough. My Father was in the 82nd Airborne, Ft. Bragg, NC and was in Vietnam. My heartfelt thanks and hugs I send to you, and may our Heavenly Father’s hand cover and protect you….always.

    With humble thanks and love to a great man!

  5. Thank you Sgt. for all you have done. We don’t understand the sacrifices sometimes that we ask of our military. We do know that you are a hero in our eyes.
    I have sent a card and small book from our church for you at the Ft. Sam Houston address. (Words of encouragement). Unfortunately it came back “attempted unknown”. I would still like to get this to you.
    God Bless you
    All the Damrons and Word of Life Church

    Thank you Sgt for serving your Country and sacrificing yourself for our freedoms and the freedom of others. We do not take your service or sacrifice lightly. I had a brother in the Marines who served two tours of duty in Viet Nam, a Marine father who served during WWII and a grandpa who served in WWI……….they are all heroes in my eyes, and so are you.

    SGT Thornhill,

    I happen to work at Ft Sam Houston. I read the trauma charts to help collect data to improve things for those wounded in theater. I am an RN, and did a tour in Iraq myself – I worked in the ER at the Balad theater hospital when I was in the Air Force. I was wondering – since I am so close by, if you are up for visits/are stir crazy there, I would love to visit with you.God bless you for what you have endured.

    Please you or your family can get in touch with me at

    Sgt. THornhill,

    Your sacrifice and willingness to risk everything for your country is the most wonderful Christmas gift any human could give another. We truly appreciate all that you have done and know that if it weren’t for very brave men and women like yourself we would not be sleeping so comfortably at night back in the US. I am very sorry to hear of the massive injuries you have sustained at the hands of our enemies and pray that you find peace as you work hard to recover and heal.
