An Extraordinary Speech

by Alan Fraser - December 12th, 2010 - The American Thinker

What follows is a transcript of an extraordinary speech given by Lieutenant General John F. Kelly USMC on November 13, 2010. What renders it so is that General Kelly's son, First Lieutenant Robert Michael Kelly, was killed in action in Sangin, Afghanistan only four days before Lt. Gen. Kelly gave this speech. Lt. Gen. Kelly's eldest child is also A U.S. Marine.

Semper Fi Gen. Kelly. Thank you for a lifetime of service to our nation. At this time of year with its emphasis on introspection, this speech is a great read.
