I wish to thank all of of Plainfield's veterans on this, their special day. I thank you for the enormity of your sacrifice, the depth of your courage, your loyalty to our great nation, and above all, for your unearned pain and suffering. We love you, and we exalt you above all but the Creator, whose saving grace has kept you through the many battles that you have fought. May you be blessed, this day and every day.
With great thanks,
