Today we honor all of those who have sacrificed their lives in the defense of our liberty, our freedom and our country. The price they have paid could never be repaid, we thank them and remember them, and continue to uphold the cause of liberty for which they laid down their lives.
We also honor today those who are enlisted in the armed forces of these United States of America, who are now standing up for our common defense and have put themselves in harm’s way. We thank you for your willingness and courage.
We also remember and honor every day, our Lord Jesus Christ who is the author and finisher of our liberty and faith. We honor Him who made the ultimate sacrifice to set the world at liberty through faith in His name.
