Annual Veterans Program: The Birth of Liberty and The Military:

Speaker:  Ben Martin

In  In November we Americans honor those citizens who, throughout our history, have bravely stepped forward to defend our Nation, our Founding Principles, our loved ones – all that we hold dear.  The citizens who do that become members of the US Armed Forces; and having honorably served, we call them Veterans.  When entering the US Armed Forces, they take an oath which says they will protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic; and bear true faith and allegiance to the same…

The Presentation will honor those Veterans by examining our Declaration of Independence, which has been called the greatest document of human liberty ever written, and our Nation’s Primary Founding Principles, which it contains.  This was the birth of liberty!  Those Principles are the ones upon which our Constitution is based, they are the object of the Veteran’s Oath.   We will then look at the critical, early battles of the American Revolution surrounding the Declaration and the heroic deeds of the American Patriots who fought them.  This was the birth of the US Military and our first Veterans.
