"Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed."
Thank you to my Dad, my Grandad, my great-uncles, my dad's cousins... two of whom have lost sons in recent months. Thank you to those brave young soldiers. Thank you Ron. Thank you, Paul (and congratulations on your promotion to Lt. Colonel!) Thank you to my great (x 7) grandfather Thomas who fought in the Revolutionary War.
How we are indebted to all, past and present, who willingly put their lives in harm's way for our freedom, and for the freedom of those around the world. How we are indebted to their families who let them go.
We honor you today. Thank you.
