“We must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors.”
– Ronald Reagan
May we continue to have the courage in this great nation to maintain within our own land the freedom that is the source of our strength, our greatness, and our happiness. May God continue to watch over this single greatest nation in the history of the earth.
But God needs His helpers to watch over us. It is our veterans who, through their often thankless sacrifice, their forgotten bravery, and their untold courage, preserve our sacred freedom. I know all of you – many of you veterans yourselves – join me in simply saying, thank you. Thank you for your service to our nation, to our people. Thank you for keeping us free.
