Buzz Aldrin Closing Remarks

“This evening we have heard stories of love and compassion shown by men of our Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. These men bear witness of the basic values of our men and women who serve in the military forces of America, then and now. We have heard from the children of the Korean War who are now in their 50s and 60s and the appreciation that they have for those who gave them aid when they needed it the most. It is our responsibility to ensure that these stories are not lost to history and that they must be told to each new generation. The photo exhibit we blessed with our presence this evening will help ensure that those stories endure.

Now, at the end of this Memorial Day ceremony let me ask that all veterans of our armed forces please stand and receive an applause from all of us for your service to America. Thank you and good night.
