No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! You've successfully reported this review. Emmanuel [Emil] Freireich. When Emmanuel [Emil] began his work, 99 percent of children with leukemia died. Thanks largely to Dr. Doctor, you are a great American hero. Americans always take care of each other. Here tonight from the Florida panhandle is Tina Belcher. Angel turns her tiny kitchen into a disaster relief center. On a single day after Hurricane Michael, she gave people a warm meal.
Angel, your boundless heart inspires us all. Thank you very much. From our earliest days, Americans of faith have uplifted our nation. This evening, we are joined by Sister Deirdre Byrne. Sister Byrne is a retired Army surgeon who served for nearly 30 years. On September 11th, , the sister raced to Ground Zero.
Through smoke and debris, she administered first aid and comfort to all. Sister, thank you for your lifetime of service. Our nation has always honored the heroes who serve our communities: the firefighters, first responders, police, sheriffs, ICE, Border Patrol, and all of the brave men and women of law enforcement.
On this July 4th, we pay special tribute to the military service members who laid down their lives for our nation. We are deeply moved to be in the presence this evening of Gold Star families whose loved ones made the supreme sacrifice. Throughout our history, our country has been made ever greater by citizens who risked it all for equality and justice.
In , a thirst for justice led African American students to sit down at the Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina.
It was one of the very first civil rights sit-ins and it started a movement all across our nation. Clarence Henderson was years-old when he took his place in history. Almost six decades later, he is here tonight in a seat of honor. Clarence, thank you for making this country a much better place for all Americans. It has willed our warriors up mountains and across minefields. It has liberated continents, split the atom, and brought tyrants and empires to their knees.
Here with us this evening is Earl Morse. Earl found that many World War Two veterans could not afford to visit their memorial on the National Mall. Earl, thank you. We salute you. Thank you, Earl. Our warriors form a hallowed roll call of American patriots, running all the way back to the first souls who fought and won American independence. Today, just as it did years ago, the future of American freedom rests on the shoulders of men and women willing to defend it.
Medal Of Honor:From Antietam To Afghanistan
We are proudly joined tonight by heroes from each branch of the U. Armed Forces, including three recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor. They, and thousands before us, served with immense distinction, and they loved every minute of that service.

To young Americans across our country, now is your chance to join our military and make a truly great statement in life. And you should do it. In August of , by request of George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, Congress established a fleet of ten swift vessels to defend our shores.
These Revenue Cutters would fight pirates, stop smugglers, and safeguard our borders. They are the ancestors of our faithful Coast Guard. When our ships were seized and sailors kidnapped by foreign powers in , it was a Revenue Cutter — the swift schooner Thomas Jefferson — that swept in to capture the first British vessel of the war. In , when whalers were trapped in ice — and the ice fields of Alaska were closing up — courageous officers trekked fifteen hundred miles through the frozen frontier to rescue those starving men from a certain death.
In , the Coast Guard manned landing craft for invasions in the Pacific. When the enemy attacked U. Marines from the shores of Guadalcanal, Coast Guard Signalman First Class Douglas Munro used his own boat to shield his comrades from pounding gunfire. Munro gave his life; hundreds of Marines were saved. Every Coast Guardsman is trusted to put service before all. Coasties plunge from helicopters, and barrel through pouring rain and crashing waves to save American lives. They secure our borders from drug runners and terrorists. They never miss. When the red racing stripes of a Coast Guard vessel break the horizon, when their chopper blades pierce the sky, those in distress know that the help is on their way, and our enemies know their time has come.
These guardians of our waters stand, Semper Paratus. They are always ready. They are the United States Coast Guard. On a cold December morning in , a miracle occurred over the dunes of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, when two bicycle makers from Ohio defied gravity with a 12 horsepower engine, wings made of cotton, and just a few dollars in their pockets. Just six years later, America was training its first pilots to take these magnificent machines up and over the field of battle.
In World War One, our flyboys rushed the skies of Europe, and aces like Eddie Rickenbacker filled hearts and headlines with tales of daring duels in the clouds. General Billy Mitchell saw the promise of this technology, and risked court martial in his quest for an independent air force.
Nathan Hale – Revolutionary War
He was proven right when empires across the oceans tried to carve up the world for themselves, and America stood in the way. So we crushed them all from the air. More than airmen gave their lives to destroy the enemy oil refineries. And five pilots were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for their actions in that single raid.
It was airman Chuck Yeager who first broke the sound barrier. It was airmen like Gus Grissom and Buzz Aldrin, who traded their Sabre jets for rockets to the stars. And it is our incredible airmen today who wield the most powerful weapons systems on the planet Earth. For over 65 years, no enemy air force has managed to kill a single American soldier because the skies belong to the United States of America. No enemy has attacked our people without being met by a roar of thunder, and the awesome might of those who bid farewell to Earth, and soar into the wild blue yonder.
They are the United States Air Force. In October of , the Continental Congress ordered the construction of two swift-sailing vessels, each carrying 10 cannons and 80 men, to sail eastward. When our Navy begins fighting, they finish the job. Nobody could beat us. Nobody could come close. On D-Day, Seabee engineers came ashore to destroy blockades and barriers, making way for the invasion. Many lost their lives, but they took the German defenses with them, and our men crushed upon the beaches like a mighty storm. It was the SEALs who delivered vengeance on the terrorist who planned the September 11th attack on our homeland.
It was the SEALs who stand ready to bring righteous retribution — in mountain, jungle, desert — to those who do us harm. They are forged by the sea.

Their traditions are rich with the salt and blood of three centuries. When Old Glory crests the waves of foreign shores, every friend and every foe knows that justice sails those waters. It sails with the United States Navy. In November of , the Continental Congress created two battalions of a new kind of warrior — one who kept and would protect our ships and sailors, and be at home both ashore and in the mast, with musket in hand.
Their versatility was proven in the War of Independence, when Continental Marines conducted their first amphibious raid, capturing the British supply of gunpowder and cannons at Fort Nassau.
Ever since, Marines have fought in every American war. Their legend has grown and grown and grown with each passing year.
