COT short do to time constraint of the 7 am bootcamp. A good day to reflect on the service of our soldiers, the sacrifice they are asked to make for the cost of our freedom and the atrocities of war. May we not forget that the idea of America has been defended numerous times at a high cost. Despite our challenges and political differences, our soldiers have paid the ultimate sacrifice for the idea of freedom from oppression and tyranny. Let us continue to work together across differences to remember our common love for country and freedom.
