Thank you for the privilege of serving as your Vice President these past four years, it has been the greatest honor of my life. On behalf of our Wonderful Second Lady, Karen Pence, and our entire Family, Thank You and God Bless America. 🇺🇸
Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a giant of the Civil Rights Movement who called on our Nation to live up to the highest ideals of our founding. We pay tribute to the incredible life & accomplishments of Dr. King & his memory will inspire us for generations to come.
And looking out at all of you, and remembering the countless heroes we have met along the way these past four years, and the grace of Him who has ever guided the destiny of this Nation, I have faith that the day will come when we put these challenging times in the past...
From this very Fort, selfless patriots like you have been at the heart of the war on terror from the very beginning. And it’s because of you that we reached the 19th anniversary of that terrible day having had no major terrorist attack on American soil since.
Since 9/11 the 10th Mountain has been the most deployed division of the US Army. 10th Mountain brigades have served a combined 46 deployments to Iraq & Afghanistan and one of the first conventional units to deploy to Afghanistan after 9/11 came from Fort Drum.
Thank you to the men and women of the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, you are the strength and the pride of the American people. America is the freest and strongest Nation in the history of the world and you secure that freedom and you are that strength. 🇺🇸
Four years ago, we inherited a military that had been hollowed out by devastating budget cuts. Our troops hadn’t seen a significant pay raise in nearly 10 years, Iran was resurgent across the Middle East & ISIS controlled a land mass larger than Pennsylvania.
After generations where America & our allies defended the freedom of navigation & the interest of freedom loving nations across the Asia Pacific, today, China is determined to expand Beijing’s influence across the region through military provocations & debt diplomacy.
Thank you to all of the men & women serving our Country in uniform at Naval Air Station Lemoore! The American people are more grateful for your service than you will ever know. You come from the rest of us, but make no mistake about it: You Are The Best Of Us. 🇺🇸
As long as Americans push the boundaries of what is possible, as long as we're brave enough to push the envelope and as long as American pilots and astronauts soar “into the wild blue yonder” and beyond, the story, example, courage and life of General Chuck Yeager will inspire.
In 1947, wearing a football helmet he bought with his own money & with two broken ribs, Chuck Yeager got into the cockpit of the Glamorous Glennis & became the first human being ever to break the sound barrier. At 24 years old, he inspired an entire generation of American pilots.
