I took this one a few years ago at Fort Sumter, Charleston, S.C.
"Why, in an age when so many have acted only in pursuit of narrowest self-interest, have the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines of this generation volunteered all that they have on behalf of others? Why have they been willing to bear the heaviest burden? Whatever it is, they felt some tug. They answered a call. They said, “I’ll go.” That is why they are the best of America." – President Obama
I hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend.
