America is a fortunate nation. Our armed forces, all volunteer, exemplify the enduring spirit of America, the spirit that has sustained American democracy since its inception. Today, many of them are across the world, extending that same spirit and unyielding faith in freedom to our Iraqi friends. So as you gather with friends and family during this holiday season, remember the men and women of our armed services and their families, who are so many miles apart. Remember where they are and what they are fighting for-- not just the freedom of the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan, but for our freedom as well.
