Col. Harvey C. Barney Barnum
USMC/Retired
Medal of Honor, Vietnam

 

Greetings: 

This is a time for all Americans to reflect on what it means to be an American.  We have gone across the seas in years past to fight in the defense of the freedoms we hold so dear, but this time the battlefield is closer to home - too close.  

We all must remain vigilant but not scared, we must all realize that our country will take appropriate action but we must remain patient,  our routine has been altered but we must continue to do what needs to be done.  

Our Armed Forces remain ready to go anywhere, at a moments notice, to carry out the mission dictated by the NCA, win and come home to a grateful nation.  

Through out the coming days, weeks and months ahead, I encourage every citizen to keep the fine young men and women serving in uniform today in your thoughts and prayers.  We are united, we've rallied around Old Glory and we will be successful in searching out and destroying our enemy.  

Throughout the challenges we will confront ahead, I encourage each American to take care and continue to take care of each other.  God Bless ya'll and 

God Bless America.

Barney
