“On distant battlefields, in far-off oceans, and high in the skies above, they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail,” he added. “They made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace.
“It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny,” the former president continued.
“We owe all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting,” he said, going on to note the country’s “warriors” are responsible for ensuring “justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth.”
“God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines. We honor them today, forever, and always,” Trump concluded.
President Joe Biden offered similar praise for America’s men and women who have died while serving the country.
“All those we honor today gave their lives for the country, but they live forever in our hearts,” Biden said.
After praising generations of service members who have “made the ultimate sacrifice” to protect the country and its principles, Biden said, “we must honor their sacrifice by sustaining the best of America while honestly confronting all that we must do to make our nation fuller, freer and more just.”
