Once again, American Soldiers have shown the world why our military is the finest fighting force on earth. And now that legacy falls to the proud graduates today. Earlier generations of Soldiers from Fort Jackson made their way to Europe and liberated a continent from tyranny. Today a new generation is following in their noble tradition. And, one day, people will speak of your achievements in Baqouba and Baghdad the way we now speak of Normandy and the Bulge.
