THE WHITE HOUSE. Washington September 15, 2005

I send greetings to those gathered for the dedication of the Ventura County, California, portion of U. S. Highway 101 in honor of the 101st Airborne Division.

America’s veterans exemplify the honor and patriotism that make our country strong. Throughout our Nation’s history, these loyal citizens have answered the call of duty and defended our founding ideals. We are grateful to our veterans who have served and sacrificed to advance the cause of freedom, and we are inspired by their example of courage and dedication.

As we work to extend liberty and defeat terrorism, we remember our veterans’ enduring accomplishments and honor their commitment to our country. These proud citizens continue to inspire new generations of Americans.

Laura and I send our best wishes for a memorable event. May God bless you, and may God continue to bless America.

George Bush
