My name is Suze Fricker and I am from London England. I apologise if I have already sent a letter similar to this to you before but I thought that I would double check what I am doing and resend out to all I can find.
In 2016 I started a Thank You campaign for uniformed services to include the following: Police, Military, Fire, Paramedics (EMTs), Life guards, Doctors and Nurses. This came out of my admiration for people who serve their communities, cities and countries in uniform. I know from personal experience due to health or phobias that none of these professions would be suitable for me and so I decided that I would make the effort to thank those who took up the calling.
You who serve in Uniform, no matter what it is do so, so that people like me, who cant serve, are not forced into situations they can not handle. You do so with bravery and courage and make many people feel safe or better for you being around. Despite the negativity that can surround the uniformed services you still go into work the next day and the day after and so on and so forth. You can see the best and worst that life and throw at someone and still find meaning and passion in everything that you do.
So to you, and everyone you serve with, I say Thank You For Your Service.
I would also ask you to let your families know my thanks as well. As Tom Selleck said in Blue Bloods, “Your Family serves just as much as you do”. Which is true. Behind those in uniform there are people who do amazing things including supporting you and being there through the rough times.
One day I hope to be able to thank as many people as I can in person as honestly you make me proud to be a citizen of this planet.
Stay safe, keep well and Thank You For Your Service.
p.s. I am sending this to the top people so that they can disseminate to all who work within. I am a lowly civil servant so I cant afford to send out to every single station etc.
