Pres. Bush said:
The purpose of the monument is to remind generations of Americans of the sacrifices that Americans made to protect our country. But there's a broader purpose, as well, and that is to remind generations of Americans about the transformative effect of freedom.

One of the great stories during World War II was that people fought bitterly to defend our country and way of life, and then worked to help our enemies develop democracies according to their own cultures and their own history. And today, I am so pleased to report that Japan is a strong ally of the United States of America -- an ally in defending our liberties and an ally in spreading liberty as the great ideological alternative to an enemy that still wants to do us harm.
Even though this is specifically aimed at WWII, please let us all not forget the millions of men and women that have given their lives so that we can enjoy our freedoms that have been so preciously given to us. May those that have paid the ultimate price, know that their sacrifice was not in vain.

And on those thoughts, I would like to personally give a very public thank you to everyone that is giving (and have given) their time, energy, and possibly their lives in the support of this great country!! :usa:

And Merry Christmas!!
