President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 Memorial Day Speech

President Reagan’s Remarks at Memorial Day Ceremonies Honoring an Unknown Serviceman of the Vietnam Conflict on May 28, 1984.

By Gary P Jackson

Each Memorial Day we remember those who gave their lives in order to protect all we hold so precious. Throughout the history of the United States brave men and women have fought to maintain our God given Liberty and Freedom. Far too many have died in the service to our cause, as they have not only protected our nation, but helped to free people world wide who also sought Liberty and Freedom.

I am always in awe of every man and woman who serves. In the world we live in today, it’s inspiring to see these brave citizens who honor our nation with their sacrifices, so the rest of us can enjoy the life we do.

There are never enough words to express the gratitude we all owe these men and women, or the families of those who have sacrificed their lives for us all.

The above video of Ronald Reagan is particularly meaningful. He speaks about the soldiers of Vietnam, who served their nation honorably, but didn’t get the appreciation they deserved when they returned home. This is, and will always be one of our nation’s great injustices.

Though we can never bring those lives lost back, we can make sure we thank our members of the military at every opportunity. As a nation we are truly blessed to have such fine men and women among us.

May God bless all who serve and all who gave their last full measure of devotion.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By Gary P Jackson

As we are about to celebrate our nation’s 234th birthday, Sarah Palin joined a host of great Americans, to offer her support for the heroic men and women, who serve in our armed forces. When asked about the poor treatment our Vietnam veterans experienced when they returned home, Sarah had this to say:

I’m ashamed of the way our Vietnam vets have been treated and if there’s anyway we can make it up to them, let us do so. And learning from the experience that some had participated in with that mistreatment of vets returning way back when, let us make sure that never happens again and that we always can keep in mind what it is in terms of the sacrifice being made by our troops today. Let’s show them the support, let’s show them the respect that they so deserve. Bottom line, our men and women in uniform truly are a force for good in this world and it’s nothing to apologize for – it’s something to take pride in! The are our true American heroes!
