Tea Party Honors Our Military Families
Millions of members of the Tea Party across America shall never forget the sacrifice of those who gave all in the defense of our nation and the proclamation of freedom.
It is not the reporter, it’s not the campus organizer nor is it the politician who protects our freedom but it is the Soldier, Sailor and those who serve in the Marine Corps and the Air Force who are truly the protectors of our freedom.
All Americans are the beneficiaries of those who served and gave their full measure.
Our beloved nation must never forget we are sustained by the hand of God and by those brave souls who pledge their life, liberty and their sacred honor in the preservation of our great nation.
- Steve Eichler, CEO Tea Party/Teaparty.org
