Brewer: Happy Thanksgiving

On this eve of Thanksgiving, I wish all Arizonans a bountiful and safe holiday.

This is our opportunity as Americans to give thanks for each of our sacred blessings. I am thankful for the privilege to live in a nation where individual freedom is protected. I am thankful for the decent, generous and hardworking citizens of Arizona who make this State such a pleasure to serve. I am thankful for the loved ones with whom I will enjoy this wonderful holiday season.

And, of course, I am ever grateful for the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, whose service and sacrifice make these blessings possible. As we gather around the Thanksgiving table, let us keep these service members in our thoughts and our hearts. To those far from home defending our freedoms this Thanksgiving; to those on-duty on American soil; and to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this Nation: Thank you.

I bid everyone a wonderful and safe holiday filled with food, football, family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving!"

Jan Brewer is the Republican governor of Arizona.
