Adm. Mike Mullen quote
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen, in his Independence Day message to servicemembers

Al Qaeda has been beaten back in Iraq, but it is not defeated. The Taliban still claws for power in Afghanistan. Extremists of all kinds all over the world still plot against us, our fellow citizens, and our allies and friends. And yet still you serve. Still you sacrifice.
