President Barack Obama will be the keynote speaker at a rally in Florida Sunday marking the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.
The event will take place at the Gettysburg National Military Park.
In a speech that will be broadcast live, Obama will tell the audience, “We can no longer let the nation that started this conflict continue to hide behind empty rhetoric.
Obama will say, “Our country is safer and stronger today because of the sacrifices that soldiers like you made in service to our country.” “
We have to act.”
Obama will say, “Our country is safer and stronger today because of the sacrifices that soldiers like you made in service to our country.”
He will urge the crowd to take pride in the fact that “the greatest military in history was created because of your patriotism and your sacrifice.”
“There are many reasons why we need to take more responsibility,” he said.
“The greatest burden we carry today is a legacy of racism and sexism and homophobia.
And we cannot accept this.””
Our nation is stronger because of you,” Obama said.
He said he would have given the Medal of Honor to more soldiers “but I couldn’t.”
He pledged to work with Congress to pass legislation to “ensure that every American has a chance to serve and to ensure that our veterans get the care they need.”
Obama has said the U.S. should honor its soldiers who gave their lives.
On Thursday, he said that the country’s military is “under attack” by “anti-American hate groups” and a “deep state” trying to “further the agenda of the global elite.”
