Once again I wish to thank all those that served our county during the conflicts of the past.
The point being this is a time of the year when we remember the sacrifices that the young men of our country make on our behalf.
The solider that walks a lonely post, or a sailor on a ship under way, as he stands watch with the wind and rain in his face. Or a clerk in the military that has the duty of the day, and vows that this country will not fail because of him. To all of you in our CBS family that served this country, whether in combat or peacetime duty, the country thanks you, and your reward is the greatest that this country can give to each of you, the title...
