“The President told us to imagine what America could accomplish as a nation if we followed the lead of our Armed Forces and work together. He said, ‘Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.’

“The blueprint the President offered is what we all should strive to provide for future generations. I know we can accomplish this vision because - like the President said - we have certainly done it before.
