Navy SEALs Remind Us What’s Still Possible


Honor, dignity, trustworthiness, all these great character traits that you find in the military. The dignity, the honor, integrity, devotion, patriotism, the respect the uniformed military personnel have for the military, for their own institutions.

It really reminds me a couple, three years ago we went to a Horatio Alger dinner, annual dinner, where this is people who have come up from nothing to make something of themselves. They really started from nothing and become the pinnacle, the best at what they do. And I was listening to every award winner, every recipient make a speech, and it was in Washington, and Obama was present since it was in his first term. And what I was hearing all these people say, you don’t hear anymore. Talking about the route to success, hard work, what it took, respect for and love for their families and so forth, and greatness of America residing in freedom and liberty and the opportunity for people to invest in themselves however they wish and be the best they could be.

I remember telling you when I heard that I felt like I was in a time warp ’cause a few blocks down the road is the White House where Obama is, and we don’t hear anything like that from any American leader. Except we did hear it from Rubio yesterday, which is one of the reasons that I was praiseworthy, because he has this kind of story, his family, immigrants, in fact. But this dinner last night which honored the Navy SEALs and benefited the Navy SEAL museum, which is in Fort Pierce, Florida, which I didn’t know. You can arrange a tour. The Navy SEAL museum is in Fort Pierce.
