Wow! What a speech.

During my Military career, I use to make my Troops listen to General MacArthur's speech "Duty, Honor, Country". It's always been my all time favorite ....... I now have two.

Thank you.

BTW, I enjoyed your Veterans Day essay also. A great story.

Great vid. The juxtaposition of this against the photo of the presidential jackass saluting is a little rough on the brain, though.

Timeless guidance to warriors delivered with wit and love. It speaks to everyone who ever served or will serve in US armed forces. Fact it was delivered by an AF officer makes me proud to have been one of them for 25 years.
