Open Letter in Support of America's Armed Forces To America's Armed Forces:

Open Letter in Support of America's Armed Forces To America's Armed Forces:

Since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, you have been deployed around the world and have demonstrated that you can win both the war against global terrorism, and the peace in formerly inhospitable places like Iraq and Afghanistan.

The effects of the liberation you won in Iraq and Afghanistan are reverberating throughout the region: Afghanistan successfully held its first democratic elections. Iraq is preparing for democratic elections. The Saudis will hold municipal elections. The theocracy in Iran is in deep trouble from the liberation movement there. Jordan is accelerating market economic reforms. Qatar is reforming education to give more choices to parents. The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded for the first time to an Iranian -- a Muslim woman who speaks out with courage for human rights, for democracy and for peace. And we saw representatives from the region at the 2004 Olympics as "free men and women."

When we examine the events of the world today, the words of George Washington's First Inaugural Address ring strangely true: "The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people." And now the preservation of that sacred fire is passed on to Iraqis, Afghanis, and others, thanks to your faithful defense of the Republic.

You Patriots -- American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coastguardsmen -- have plowed the ground for these events. We remain the proud and the free because you have stood bravely in harm's way, and remain on post today. For this, we, the American People, offer our heartfelt thanks.
