Veterans Day

You have gone where others would not go. You have faced what others willed not to face. You have triumphed over what others could not triumph over. You have turned over your own freedom and life so that it may be presented as a gift to future generations. Savor the fruits of your labor and join with me as we remember the fidelity that is found in our service to the citizens of the United States of America. We are the honor guard of the Constitution and the heralds of the Declaration of Independence.

Today, your low estate is exalted far above that of kings and statesmen. Your detractors are silenced. Your supporters are driven to cheers of joy. Stand proud and take in the praise of a grateful nation; you who are guardians of freedom... you chivalrous patriots. The day is yours.

That is all.
