Thank you, Pine, for hosting the 108th Army Band of the Arizona National Guard.
The evening was absolutely terrific! The performance filled the listeners with a sense of national pride, put a smile on your face, a song on your lips, a tap in your toe and a tear in your eye. It was a blessing and privilege to attend this performance with the fine men and women who presented us with such a rousing performance and patriotic celebration. During the evening, the military veterans and those currently serving were asked to stand when the Army Band played the song associated with their branch of our military, the room fairly crackled with appreciation and pride for our country and those who serve. Wonderful!
My sincere hope for this nation would be to see every American live as a true patriot and raise up a new generation of citizens who love and believe in America. I hope Americans will strive to make this nation strong and good because of the divine blessings that have been poured out on our country allowing us to enjoy freedom and prosperity.
