God Bless Our Troops.
Defenders of Freedom.
Standing sentinel at the gates of Walter Reed. Standing to remind those who would forget.
Reminded that cost of liberty and the cost of war are not the same. The cost of liberty is much higher. It is not a number that can be measured by marble markers in Arlington or by dollars and cents. Liberty is measured in giving of a Nation's sons and daughters. Sons and daughters we have given so much of our own lives to. We give them to our Nation. And our sons and daughters give their years, and months, and days to the Nation.
Tonight, somewhere, our sons and daughters stand ready.
Remind them that you stand with them.
That they are our defenders of freedom.
That they our heroes.
That we are proud.
And that we are grateful.
