234 years ago the greatest Army in the history of the world was established. Those many years ago men entered into a fight and a commitment that was had implications on their personal lives that we cannot understand. We stand here today able to enjoy what we have because of them. I am honored to serve in the organization that so many men, better men than me, have been a part of. So today gents please give a passing thought to the birth of the US Army and those that made our Country great.
