On November 11, 1919 President Woodrow Wilson issued the following statement regarding what was to be known as National Armistice Day and later Veterans Day.

To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with - solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.

There is little doubt that most of you reading this message will recall exactly where you were when 9.11 took on new meaning in American vocabulary. Fourteen years ago today America became the victim of a tragic attack which lead to the loss of nearly 3,000 innocent lives. In the years that have passed we have continued to see the effects that these and other attacks have had on our lives and the lives of those intimately connected to September 11, 2001.

Each year the American Trucking Association sets aside a week in September to celebrate and honor those that service our country by moving the goods our nation depends upon. There are approximately 3.2 million professional truck drivers in our country and this week we celebrate and honor those who work in this profession.

The Professional Truck Driver of today faces many challenges with changing regulations, equipment specifications, environmental implications and a host of other concerns that require their full attention. The Professional Drivers that travel up and down our highways are a dedicated and hardworking group of men and women who take great pride in doing their jobs well. Their jobs are not easy by any stretch of the imagination, and we recognize that this group of individuals is consistently putting forth the time and energy to service our country well.

We pause today to remember a day in American history that will be etched in our memories for the balance of our days. I am sure each of you can recall where you were thirteen years ago when you first learned of the attacks on American soil and the following days of turmoil. For those who watched this from the safe distance of our televisions to those that were at ground zero the impact was felt throughout our nation.


That day reminded us of who we are as a people, and that the freedoms we enjoy are gifts we have inherited - and are obligated to defend. We saw that day bring forth great heroes, those that were willing to exchange their lives for the life of another as they worked tirelessly to rescue and care for the wounded. That event also welcomed the introduction of a new generation of national pride and those willing to enlist in the defense of our freedoms. September 11, 2001 is a hallowed reminder that the country we love is ours and ours alone to care for.

Today Americans celebrate the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of this great country. As Americans we enjoy a great number of freedoms that many in this world have never known the taste of: to speak our mind with liberty, to vote with conscience, and to be a country governed of the people, by the people and for the people.

These rights and privileges granted to us by so many who have gone before and set the foundations of this great nation are to be celebrated and respected, and our nation sets this day aside to remember and rejoice.
