Memorial Day

Memorial Day

On this day our country gives thanks for the service of America’s veterans and to their accomplishments.

Comrades, if you are ever asked, “Just what is it veterans have done?”

I would respond simply with this: around the world, veterans have broken the shackles of tyranny, unloosed the chains of bondage and emancipated entire nations from oppression.

Veterans have lifted the cloak of darkness, oppression and desperation and vanquished cruelty and totalitarian government and replaced them with an unextinguishable light that is the spirit of freedom and liberty.
