President Trump held a Memorial Day Ceremony On May 25 12:03 EDT at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. He said the dignity, daring, and devotion of the American military is unrivaled anywhere in history and any place in the world. In recent months, our nation and the world have been engaged in a new form of battle against an invisible enemy. The men and women of the United States military maintain this spirit in the fight against the terrible virus to protect our citizens. Together, we will vanquish the virus, and America will rise from this crisis to new and even greater heights. President trump recalled that more than 200 years ago, American patriots repelled a British invasion in the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812. Francis Scott Key, a soldier fighting for independence and freedom, was so inspired by the sight of our flag in the battle and wrote a poem, which became the anthem of our nation: “The Star-Spangled Banner.” From generation to generation, heroes like these have poured out their blood and sweat and heart and tears for our country. Because of them, America is strong and safe and mighty and free. For as long as we have citizens willing to follow their example, to carry on their burden, to continue their legacy, then America’s cause will never fail and American freedom will never, ever die.
