One of our country’s greatest treasures is our veterans.
The monuments we have erected, in Washington, DC and across our great country is to remind us of their sacrifices for our freedoms and American ideals are a small and simply unequal token to the honor and reverence they deserve.
Our way of life comes at a price and we take today to pay tribute to living memorials, the very best of our nation’s values, our veterans.
Our veterans are men and women of immense character and courage who have made this experiment in liberty and democracy persist for almost two and a half centuries.
Thank you for your service…
