Before 2 years, U.S. President Barack Obama delivered speech on Veterans Day. We are providing some lines from his speech below.
Good morning, everyone. Thank you, Secretary Shinseki, for a lifetime of service to our nation, and for being such a tireless advocate on behalf of America’s veterans, including your fellow Vietnam veterans.
To Rick Delaney, to Vice President Biden, to Admiral Winnefeld, Major General Linnington, our outstanding veteran service organizations, our men and women in uniform Active, Guard and Reserve and most of all, to the proud veterans and family members joining us in this sacred place and it is truly a privilege and an honor to be with all of you here today.
Each year, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we pause –- as a nation, and as a people –- to pay tribute to you. To thank you. To honor you, the heroes, over the generations, who have served this country of ours with distinction.
And moments ago, I laid a wreath to remember every service member who has ever worn our nation’s uniform. And this day, first and foremost, belongs to them and their loved ones: to the father and mother, the husband and wife, the brother and sister, the comrade and the friend who, when we leave here today, will continue to walk these quiet hills and kneel before the final resting place of those they cherished most.
On behalf of the American people, I say to you that the memory of your loved one carries on not just in your hearts, but in ours as well. And I assure you that their sacrifice will never be forgotten.
