Good morning and I want to thank the good men and women who have served and are still in the military of the United States. Today is set aside for those who lost their lives and in unforgettable battles that are sometimes referred to as “Enduring Freedom”.
Many remain to tell the tales of their comrades fallen by the way. Many came back wounded and are not able to help themselves, and the stress of their survival rest with their wives and family which also create additional pressures and further health scares.
My nephew has served over ten years and I thank God for you along with the other members of the family. Unfortunately, your service is not seen in the light of others with the remarks made about the communities you grew up and where you currently live. You have done what a normal person would have done to serve and protect your country. You have taken an Oath and you have executed it properly.
I thank you for your service, but at what cost? Are we better today than we were twenty years ago? However, regime policies must be implemented and you were called to do it with your lives.
To the many wounded soldiers, I pray that you will get all the help you need and deserve. Many of you are scared within and to the public there is nothing, but a wounded heart and the pains are unbearable to the naked eyes.
I wish you all the best on this day and may Almighty God bless and keep you. May He give you strength and courage to live each day at a time.
Sir Godfrey Gregg
