USA Trivia Answer #27
Who said this:
“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices. Because of these sacrifices, the dawn of justice and freedom throughout the world slowly casts its gleam across the horizon. Our forefathers came to our rugged shores in search of religious tolerance, political freedom, and economic opportunity. For these fundamental rights, they risked their lives. We well know today that such rights can be preserved only by constant vigilance, the eternal price of liberty!”
33rd President, Harry S. Truman, in his first address before the joint sessions of Congress on April 16, 1945, just four days after he’d been sworn in as President.
