Here tonight is Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy from Redding, California,
who noticed that veterans' graves were not marked with flags on Veterans Day.
He decided all by himself to change that and started a movement that has now placed 40,000 flags at the graves of our great heroes.
Preston, a job well done. Young patriots like Preston teach all of us about our civic duty as Americans.
And I met Preston a little while ago, and he is something very special, that I can tell you.
Great future. Thank you very much for all you've done, Preston. Thank you very much.
Preston's reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us why we salute our flag,
why we put our hands on our hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem.
Americans love their country. And they deserve a government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return.
For the last year, we have sought to restore the bonds of trust between our citizens and their government.
Working with the Senate, we are appointing judges who will interpret the Constitution as written,
including a great new Supreme Court justice and more circuit court judges than any new administration in the history of our country.
We are totally defending our Second Amendment and have taken historic actions to protect religious liberty.
And we are serving our brave veterans, including giving our veterans choice in their health care decisions.
