Our Commanders 2017 Veterans Day Speech
We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. The Declaration of Independence, the birth of America a new nation of free people.
That Declaration was tested when family against family, brother against brother, were plunged into Civil War. Four years of intense combat left 620,000 to 750,000 soldiers dead, and their sacrifice abolished slavery in America. America was now truly a nation of free people. A nation of all of the people, by all the people, for all the people, a nation ruled by the majprity of all the people.
America's Veterans have pledged their lives and swore an oath to defend our Freedoms and our Rights and far to many have made the ultimate sacrifice
I would say this to those who would disrespect our Flag, our Eagle and our Anthem you should go to Arlington National Cemetery, for that matter any Veterans Cemetery, and read the markers and ponder the bravery, the courage and the incredible willingness to sacrifice their own lives for what they believed in. Take a god look at all the markers for under each one lies a brave American Veteran. When you're finished at the cemetery go find a Veteran, and if you have the guts, look him in the eye and tell him that none of that matters to you. I can tell you exactly what that Veteran will say. You are a free person and you have the right to leave, please do, we will not miss you.
We honor all Veterans today for their Patriotism, Love of country and Willingness to Serve and Sacrifice for our way of life and we pray for the ones in harm's way. We say to all Veterans, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you and remember EAGLES soar they cannot kneel.
God Bless our Veterans
God Bless American
