USAF Memorial

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is currently speaking, at the dedication for the new Air Force Memorial in Washington, D.C. President Bush just arrived, prior to Rummy's speech, and will be speaking soon. I am watching it on Fox News.

Great words!

Here's the President!

UPDATE: President Bush's speech is here.

Here is the last part, which I especially liked:
Every man and woman who has worn the Air Force uniform is part of a great history. From the Berlin Airlift to the Korea War, to Vietnam, to the Gulf War, to Kosovo and today's war on terror, a long blue line of heroes has defended freedom in the skies above. To all who have climbed sunward and chased the shouting wind, America stops to say: Your service and sacrifice will be remembered forever, and honored in this place by the citizens of a free and grateful nation.

May God bless you all.
