On Sacred Ground. Pres.Trump Honors Our Fallen Heroes and Our Military

Arlington National Cemetery
Arlington, Virginia

11:47 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much, everyone.  Thank you very much.  What an honor.  Secretary Mattis —

AUDIENCE MEMBER:  We love you!

THE PRESIDENT:  And I love you, too.  (Laughter.)  General Dunford, Joint Chiefs, members of the Armed Forces, members of the Cabinet, members of Congress, and distinguished guests: Thank you for joining us on this solemn day of remembrance.  We are gathered here on the sacred soil of Arlington National Cemetery to honor the lives and deeds of America’s greatest heroes: the men and women who laid down their lives for our freedom.  Today, we pay tribute to their service, we mourn alongside their families, and we strive to be worthy of their sacrifice.

The heroes who rest in these hallowed fields — in the cemeteries, battlefields, and burial grounds near and far — are drawn from the full tapestry of American life.  They came from every generation, from towering cities and windswept prairies, from privilege and from poverty.  They were generals and privates, captains and corporals, of every race, color, and of every creed.  But they were all brothers and sisters in arms.  And they were all united then, as they are united now forever, by their undying love of our great country.  (Applause.)

Theirs was a love more deep and more pure than most will ever know.  It was a love that willed them up mountains, through deserts, across oceans, and into enemy camps and unknown dangers.  They marched into hell so that America could know the blessings of peace.  They died so that freedom could live.

America’s legacy of service is exemplified by a World War II veteran who joins us today — Senator Bob Dole.  (Applause.)  Earlier this year, I was fortunate to present a very special award to Bob — the Congressional Gold Medal.  (Applause.)  Bob, thank you for honoring us with your presence, and thank you for your lifetime of service to our nation.

Today, we remember your fallen comrades who never returned home from that great struggle for freedom.

We are also proud to be in the company of another American hero — Navy veteran Ray Chavez.  (Applause.)  At 106 years of age — (applause) — and he was in the Oval Office two days ago, and he doesn’t look a day over 60 — (laughter) — he’s the oldest living survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  (Applause.)  What a guy.  And, Ray, you are truly an inspiration to all who are here today and all of our great country.  Thank you, Ray, for being with us.  Thank you.  (Applause.)

Most importantly, we’re joined today by the families of the American heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice.  We cannot imagine the depth of emotion that this day brings each year — the grief renewed, the memories re-lived, those last beautiful moments together cherished and always remembered.  And you also feel that incredible pride — a pride shared by one really and truly grateful nation.  (Applause.)

To every parent who weeps for a child, to every child who mourns for a parent, and to every husband or wife whose heart has been torn in two: Today we ask God to comfort your pain, to ease your sorrow, and to wipe away your tears.  This is a very special day.  And today, our whole country thanks you, embraces you, and pledges to you: We will never forget our heroes.  (Applause.)

Joining us today is the family of Marine Lieutenant Colonel David Greene, who rests here at Arlington.  (Applause.)  Dave grew up in Upstate New York, dreaming of attending the United States Naval Academy.  In 1982, that dream came true.  Soon another dream came true when Dave met his eternal soulmate, Sarah, who is here with their two beautiful children, Jena and Wesley.  (Applause.)  He’s looking down on you right now.  You know that, right?  He’s looking down on you, and he’s so proud and happy.

After 10 years of service as a Marine helicopter pilot, Dave left active duty to spend more time with the people who truly filled his heart.  Those are the people you just met.  But Sarah knew the man she married — she knew he couldn’t live without serving.  Couldn’t do it.  So she suggested he join the services in the form of reserves, and that’s what he did.

In January 2004, Dave deployed to Iraq.  That summer, just a few weeks before he was scheduled to return home, he was called in to provide air support for ground troops who were in very serious danger.  They were in very serious trouble.  He immediately raced to the scene.  As he covered his troops, he was shot by ground fire, giving up his life for his comrades and his country.

Lieutenant Colonel Greene remains one of the highest-ranking Marines to have been killed in Iraq since 2003.  But for him, it was never about rank or title.  Like all of his fellow warriors, it was only about duty.  He served to defend our flag and our freedom.

And now his son Wesley, who is a senior at Liberty University, plans to follow in his father’s footsteps and join the military.  (Applause.)  Wesley, I just want to congratulate you and your entire family.  Great, great family.  Thank you very much, and thank you for being here with us.  (Applause.)  Thank you very much.  Beautiful.  You’re going to love the military.  These are incredible people.

We’re also honored to have with us today the family of Army Captain Mark Stubenhofer, and his wife Patty, and their children, Lauren, Justin, and Hope.  (Applause.)  Please.  Thank you for being with us.  Thank you very much.  Such an honor.

Mark grew up not far from here, in Springfield, Virginia. Every year, he visited these grounds and hoped to someday serve here as a member of that very, very famous Old Guard.

In 2004, Mark deployed to Iraq for the second time.  While he was there, Patty went into labor with their third child, and Mark was with her by phone when their beautiful baby girl was born.  Together, they named her Hope.

Just a few months later, Mark was on a mission near Baghdad when he was tragically slain by a sniper’s bullet.

Today, Hope is 13 years old.  Although she never had the chance to meet her great father, she can feel his love wrapped around her every single day.  And when Patty puts her children to bed, and kisses them goodnight, she can see Mark’s legacy beaming back at her through their bright and glowing eyes.  Thank you so much.  (Applause.)  Really beautiful.  Thank you.  You know that, right?

Also joining us today is a very special friend: Seven-year-old Christian Jacobs, who is here with his mom Brittany.

I met Christian exactly one year ago today.  Last year, after the wreath-laying ceremony, Christian walked over to me with great confidence, shook my hand, looked me straight in the eye, and asked if I would like to meet his dad.  He loved his dad — Marine Sergeant Christopher Jacobs, who died when Christian was just eight months old.

Next, Christian, looking as sharp as you could look dressed in a beautiful Marine outfit — I’ve never seen a Marine look that good in my life, Christian.  (Applause.)  He wanted to look good, he told me, as a tribute to his father.  And he led me to his dad’s grave, and we paid our respects together.  It was a moment I will always remember.

Christian, I want you to know that even though your father has left this world — he’s left it for the next — but he’s not gone.  He’ll never be gone.  Your dad’s love, courage, and strength live in you, Christian.  And as you grow bigger and stronger, just like him, so too does your father’s incredible legacy.  So thank you both.  That’s so beautiful.  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you.  Thank you, Christian.  Good to see you.  He’s become my friend, I will tell you.  Special young man.

To every family member of the fallen, I want you to know that the legacy of those you lost does not fade with time, but grows only more powerful.  Their legacy does not, like a voice in the distance, become a faint echo.  But, instead, their legacy grows deeper, spreading further, touching more lives, reaching down through time and out across many generations.  Through their sacrifice, your loved ones have achieved something very, very special: immortality.

Today we also remember the more than 82,000 American servicemen and women who remain missing from wars and conflicts fought over the past century.  We will never stop searching for them.  (Applause.)  And whenever possible, we will bring them home.  We pledge to remember not just on Memorial Day.  We will always remember them.  We will remember them every day.

Moments ago, I laid a wreath in tribute to those resting “in honored glory.”  For more than 80 years, the Sentinels of the Old Guard have kept watch over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  Serving in this elite unit is among the most prestigious honors in the United States military.  While the rest of us sleep, while we go about our lives, through every minute, through every day, through freezing cold, scorching heat, and raging storms, they stand watch.

Even when the Earth shook beneath their feet on 9/11, and smoke from the Pentagon darkened the sky above these tree-lined hills, here they remained, faithful at their post, eternal on guard.  They never moved.

The Sentinel always stands, because America never forgets it’s our heroes who make us who we are and who determine what we will be.  (Applause.)

Our fallen heroes have not only written our history — they’ve shaped our destiny.  They saved the lives of the men and women with whom they served.  They cared for their families more than anything in the world.  They love their families.  They inspired their communities, uplifted their country, and provided the best example of courage, virtue, and valor the world will ever know.  They fought and bled and died so that America would forever remain safe and strong and free.

Each of the markers on that field — each of the names engraved in stone — teach us what it means to be loyal and faithful and proud and brave and righteous and true.

That is why we come to this most sacred place.  That is why we guard these grounds with absolute devotion.  That is why we always will remember.  Because here — on this soil, on these grounds, beneath those fields — lies the true source of American greatness, of American glory, and of American freedom.

As long as we are blessed with patriots such as these, we shall forever remain one people, one family, and one nation under God.  (Applause.)

It’s been my great honor to be with you today.  I want to thank you.  May God bless the families of the fallen.  May God bless the men and women who serve.  And may God bless the United States of America — our great country.  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you very much.

Memorial Day Remembrance Interview


 Memorial Day

 A Time To Remember Our Heroes


 Paul E. Vallely

MG, US Army (ret)

We pause this day in America to remember our fallen heroes, the men and women who answered the call of freedom and paid the ultimate sacrifice.  Let us remember and thank them for the nights they slept freezing in a tent or sweating in the desert, for the lonely days they spent fighting boredom and missing loved ones, for the hours they spent sick in pain from battle and without someone holding their hand other than their fellow soldiers, for the moments of sheer fright in the heat of battle, for the wounds suffered fighting evil, for the endless days in hospitals undergoing painful surgeries, for the precious occasions  missed at home with family and friends.

For all of these sacrifices, we need to thank them on behalf of millions of Americans who are so grateful. We truly appreciate their dedication to duty.  A special thank you to all families and friends, to the parents who raised them, stood by them and made them honorable men and woman.

We thank the wives, husbands, and loved ones who stood by them and supported them with their love. May their legacy be honored for generations to come, may the tears shed over their coffins fertilize the fields of patriotism in our nation. The new generations to come must be built on strength, duty, honor and country, willing and able to follow in their Warrior footsteps when duty calls to defend America. May their blood not have been shed in vain. May we prove worthy of their sacrifice.

You who have served and are serving as our brave ones, our heroes, are our national treasures. You are the pride of our nation, our strength and our foundation. Thanks to you, millions have been freed around the world. Those who criticize our country, burn our precious flag, and speak ill of you, are able to do so because their freedom is built upon your blood and your sacrifice.

Our son speaks from his resting place below our feet. He speaks to me each day from his hallowed space with beautiful skies and mountains majestic white with snow. God bless his soul and  the others buried here and I thank him for his wonderful contribution to our life. He lives forever in our hearts. I fear no evil when I walk with Warriors. We walk in the valley of death but we fear no evil. We are the Masters of our Destiny and the Captain of our souls. You are the wind beneath my wings. I fly with you forever in eternity.

Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day began as a tradition of decorating the graves of fallen Civil War soldiers with flags and flowers to show the respect of a grateful nation for their service and sacrifice. This tradition continues today, and our nation now sets aside the last Monday in May to celebrate the courage of the men and women who have worn America’s colors in war and in peace.

I remember as a young man remembering Memorial Day that in the morning there was a parade down Main Street, led by a color guard, the high school band, and ranks of veterans from World War I, World War II, and the war of the moment, Korea. The Veterans of Foreign Wars sold red poppies to raise funds for the disabled. Politicians made speeches and citizens prayed in public. It was a solemn annual event that taught us reverence for those who served and sacrificed for our country. It’s no longer so in many places in America, especially in our large urban areas.

Begun as a local observance in the aftermath of the Civil War, the first national commemoration took place on May 30, 1868, at the direction of General John A. Logan, Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. Though his “General Order No. 11” specified “strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion” – meaning only Union soldiers – those who tended the burial sites at Arlington, VA, Gettysburg, PA and Vicksburg, MS, decided on their own to decorate the graves of both Union and Confederate war dead.

For five decades the holiday remained essentially unchanged. But in 1919, as the bodies of young Americans were being returned to the U.S. from the battlefields of World War I, May 30th became a truly national event. It persisted as such until 1971, during Vietnam – the war America wanted to forget – when the Uniform Holiday Act passed by Congress went into effect, and turned Memorial Day into a “three-day weekend.” Since then, it’s become an occasion for appliance, mattress and auto sales, picnics, barbecues and auto races. Thankfully, there are some places besides Arlington National Cemetery like Bigfork, Montana where Memorial Day is still observed as a time to honor America’s war dead.

This Memorial Day we remember those who have served our nation in the past and those who currently serve America today. Although Memorial Day comes only once a year, we must make sure that our service members know how grateful we are every day. It recognizes the sacrifices made by our courageous men and women who have fallen in defense of our nation’s liberty. This Memorial Day, please take a moment to remember and honor America’s fallen and current day warriors who are advancing freedom’s cause today. WE salute you one and all.  WE bow before you in respect and humility. May God bless you and God bless America, land of the free and home of the brave.

Editors Note:

For those that have lost members of their family or friends who stood up to confront evil and defend America and the U.S. Constitution and who understand the role of “the empty chair” at the family dinner table, remember our enemies both foreign and domestic are focused on total control and that goes directly to disrupting and destroying the family unit using many tactics, and that goes directly to what goes on at the family dinner table. This time in history the tactics have been subtle versus physical brute force: Financial (mortgage crisis, national debt, unemployment and cyber terrorism), Shelter (mortgage crisis), Food (the expansion of the Food Stamp program and financial terrorism), Freedom of Speech (media control and spying on American Citizens), the right to protect yourself and your property, and Healthcare (Obamacare and its real end goals concerning managing American citizens until they are no longer worthwhile according to the Deep State actuaries).

It is amazing that all these parallel tracks of “Total Control” all converged at the same time to take down America in an “administrative” manner. Adolf Eichmann would be proud. After his trial for crimes against humanity, Eichmann was hung on 6-1-1962.

It comes down to this:

The true owners of the empty chairs already showed what they were willing to do. If you want to see them again all you have to do is be them. What would they do? What would they want you to do? American history has been consistent in the confrontation of evil. The Nuremburg Trials after World War II exposed the participants in evil and “Total Control” to the world. History repeats itself.

Our Constition provides a common foundation for all Americans. We must defend it or else we are nothing and will be used accordingly by our enemies both foreign and domestic.

So on this Memorial Day 5-28-2018 remember the empty chairs in your life and in American history and where you want to be from here to eternity.



And for Ostrich Nation before you get to the final door: Go ahead. Do nothing. You will be asked a question and before that happens you will have a flash in time, 30 seconds.



On this Memorial Day, Stand Up America US Foundation wishes to thank Dr. Raymond Tanter, a strong defender of human rights, for his generous donation to SUAUSF in honor of Scott Vallely and General Ed Rowney.



In 2005, Raymond Tanter cofounded the Iran Policy Committee (IPC) and serves as its President and of Iran Policy Committee Publishing. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Committee on the Present Danger, and was for about a decade an Adjunct Scholar at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Tanter served in the Executive Office of the President as a senior member on the Reagan-Bush National Security Council staff, 1981-1982. In 1983-1984, he was personal representative of the Secretary of Defense to arms control talks in Madrid, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Vienna. In 1967, Tanter was deputy director of behavioral sciences at the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the U.S. Department of Defense and a member of the Civilian Executive Panel, Chief of Naval Operations, 1980-1981.

After receiving a BA from Roosevelt University in 1961 and an MA as well as Ph. D degrees from Indiana University in 1964, Tanter served as Assistant Professor at Northwestern as well as Associate Professor and Professor at the University of Michigan; he was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Amsterdam, and on multiple occasions was Visiting Professor at Stanford, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv University. Since 2003, Tanter regularly taught terrorism and proliferation at Georgetown University as Adjunct or Visiting Professor.

From Fox News:

“President Trump sought to turn the tables on the Obama administration Monday after demanding a probe into whether his predecessor’s FBI “infiltrated” his 2016 campaign, pointedly asking what then-President Barack Obama knew about the operation – while clashing with former CIA boss John Brennan.”


“Over the course of the last two years, I have communicated with current and former government employees who told me that a number of operatives at various three-letter agencies have been actively working to undermine first the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, and then his presidency.  Most of them are Obama appointees.  All of them doing so for political reasons.

To be clear, if there was evidence indicating that political or career appointees from the administration of President George W. Bush were actively and unethically working to damage the campaign of then Senator Barack Obama or the administration of President Obama, I would want them exposed and then prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

There is nothing more dangerous to the welfare of our republic than operatives from our three-letter agencies taking sides for ideological or personal reasons and then using the vast resources at their disposal to damage and delegitimize those they oppose.”

Obama’s $150 Billion Partner Appreciation Funds


“On “Implementation Day,” which is anticipated to arrive sometime in early/mid-2016, Iran will be unshackled from the preponderance of the sanctions regime that halved its oil exports, crashed the value of its currency, and cost the country tens of billions — at least — in lost revenues and additional costs over the course of the past five years. The United Nations Security Council measures, which served as a platform for most of the actions undertaken by the rest of the world against Iran, will vanish with a few notable exceptions pertaining to conventional arms and ballistic missiles.”

“The sense of affront at the appearance of rewarding Tehran after decades of bad behavior is magnified by the irony that Washington is being forced to cede the most effective instrument in its policy toolbox, at the very moment when its efficacy has finally been confirmed, even as some of the most strategically relevant aspects of the Iranian challenge remain unabated.”



  • Under the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, $150 billion would go to a single regime that has been a state sponsor of terrorism for the entire 36 years of its existence.
  • The Iran deal, in five years, will actually lift a ban on sending Iran conventional weapons, including (in eight years) intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of hitting the United States. But Iran is already wasting no time buying weapons and producing weapons on its own.
  • When Obama leaves office, he may think that any catastrophe the Iran deal causes will not “technically” be his, but the next president’s. But it is his. It’s as if someone is lighting a long fuse and will then say he was not near the dynamite when it went off. Any explosions that result from this huge military and financial payday to Iran will, and should, be known as “Obama’s war.”
