To all men and women, past and present, retired or currently in service, we thank you today, and each day, for your service to this great country. We owe each of you a debt of gratitude for fighting for the freedoms that we all hold dear.
In the words of President Harry S. Truman, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.”
