We in the Key programs have an extraordinary respect for the men and women of our uniformed services. To simply say ‘thank you’ for the sacrifices of you and your families seems shallow – but it comes from the bottom of our hearts. As a retired Naval officer, I’ve known and admired many uniformed service members over the years. And sadly, like many of you, I’ve lost a few friends as well. Your sacrifice is one we honor and your presence in our Key programs is one we relish, for you bring a valuable and unique perspective on leadership, values and mission. Thank you all for your service.
