As we remember and honor our troops who were attacked 68 years ago at Pearl Harbor, we are reminded of the ongoing sacrifices made by our men and women in the armed forces. For those brave public servants stationed around the world today, the threat of ambush is as real as it was in 1941. Our troops who face that threat and stand ready to defeat it are the reason we enjoy peace on the home front. Please join me on this important anniversary in saluting our men in women in uniform while we remember those who fought and fell in years past so that we might enjoy the liberties bestowed upon us today.
