Recently, a friend and I were talking about the future of our country and the prospect of turning it over to the next generation. She wasn’t confident that the people behind us would be up to it.

But I reminded her that a generation of America’s leaders are deployed around the world right now. Our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are right now honing their skills as warriors, leaders,

They’re coming back to lead here. They’ve been tested and remain infused with the code of duty, honor, country.
God Bless America.
