Veterans' Day Crowd Continued From Page 1A "By honoring (those vet- erans in the crowd) we set an example for all those who fol- low, of what it takes to pre- serve liberty." Of World War II veterans, he said: "Their actions clear- ly defined what it takes for a great nation to stand up for freedom and conquer tyrants. "Their teamwork, opti- mism, courage and sacrifice on all fronts, home and abroad, does honor to them and (to) all Americans. "Thank you from all of us who were nurtured in the lux- ury of the freedoms we fought for. We cannot say thank you enough. You made the world, this country and Hogansville better places to live." , Of the young men and women serving in Iraq today, he said: "Their example in dis- cipline, decency and bravery shouts to the world the good- ness and greatness of American hearts. "They make us,proud." "May future generations never know the horrors of war, but if they do, may they answer with the same devo- tion to duty and courage as their fathers and grandfa- thers." "But we as veterans also have a list of things to be thankful for," he told the crowd. "Maybe it's appropri- ate that we remember them now, in November, this month of thank you's." First, he said, "Is this great country. We are always amazed and sometimes bemused by its riches and its excesses, but we always love it and are proud to have had a hand in maintaining the freedoms that make it so great. "And we can be thankful for the opportunities we had in the military to learn and to grow, both pleasant and unpleasant. All the sad, goofy, horrible, wonderful messes we lived through. We can be thankful for surviving and learning. "And most of all, above all, we can be thankful for the people we knew in the mili- tary. Our friends, our bud- dies. They guys that would do anything for us. "Who were at once heroes and the not so heroic. We cared so much about each other that we keep coming back, time after time and again, to do our duty. 'We remember them, liv- ing and dead and are thank- ful." He concluded with the words that sometimes don't,,. sound so meaningful but did on this Veterans Day: "God Bless America."
