Every day I am keenly aware that our nation, my nation, has those to thank who were willing to lay down the plow and take up the sword to fight and keep us free. Not only in this nation, but in my ancestor's nations of Scotland, Ireland, England, France and Germany. We are where we are in history because of those who put themselves, their trades, professions and families aside to answer the call of liberty.
Today I am in reverent awe of those who have and continue to serve in our nation's military organizations. Every citizen contributes to our nation, but we ARE A NATION because of those to serve. Thank you. THANK you. THANK YOU.
