On this day I would like to thank all of our active duty military and and all veterans who have served in our Armed Forces.
You chose to answer the call. Your commitment to freedom and your courage and sacrifices have brought the blessings of liberty to the people of the United States of America. Most of the world will never know liberty and freedom like we know it.
It may not be possible for our gratitude to match the enormity of your gifts to us. We are grateful that you stand between us and those who would do us harm. We appreciate you giving our children a hopeful future. And we pay tribute to those who offered their lives in defense of our freedom.
