It never ceases to amaze me where I meet our citizen-Soldiers; from the flooded streets of New Orleans to the Al Anbar Province of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan. Unfortunately, another place that I see them alongside their active duty comrades is during my frequent visits to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. We must never forget the sacrifices that all of our Soldiers are making in this war.
Secretary of the Army Francis J. Harvey, before the Commission on National Guard and Reserves, Jan. 31.
