“You have given this country all that you have to give, and just as you have fulfilled your duty to America, America must fulfill our duty to all of you. We must ensure that our veterans are given the care and support they so richly deserve.

“That is our unwavering commitment to those who served under the flag of the United States.

“It is the highest honor of my life to serve as the Commander in Chief of our heroic armed forces, and our obligation to our courageous men and women is absolute.

“No words can serve as a better tribute to your service than the battlefields where you fought for our flag, and the cities and towns that live in freedom only because of you.

“Your strength is America’s spine, your devotion is America’s soul, and your patriotism is America’s beating heart.”
