It's been open so it's kind of a bittersweet You Know Businessweek Day that we we recognize ten years of Dover but we were able to also in addition to the Fisher House that we built there we were. We were able to build they. Don Denominational Spiritual Center where family could go and pray or meditate in their own way and you know to me not having that at Dover when families were allowed to go and and witness you know their loved one coming home was was just travesty. So you know we're able to do that. And and our commitment you know keeps going on To this day and we'll we'll continue well into the future as long as there's a need while the Fisher fabric does wonderful things and I. I can't I don't know if you know me and your Uncle Zachary Fisher under H W Bush help build a chapel at Camp David Camp. David never had a chapel before and in nineteen eighty nine nineteen ninety was ninety one something like that. We built the chapel at Camp. David and it was a wonderful thing that we did talk about chapels and we talk about religion yesterday on Saturday. President trump announced that you know religious freedom and at all the churches should open and meet if we have super walk. It's open and if we have Liquor Stores Open. Why not opened up the churches as long as they take the right precautions? Where their masks and be able to have people pray and? I commend the president for doing that. Because people should have religious freedom. They should be able to do that. Well you know. Cows one of the learned in Iraq. It was a young soldier who came to me and we were talking about prayer and we were praying together Here I am at Iraq Frank With Rain Marina. He says to me. Hey Tony I doubt if there are too many atheists in the Fox hole today and so prairies important for as important to every single synagogues and mosques and and and churches and and Protestant and Catholics.

Now and you know we've got this this one thing in common. Which is you know our love of the military our love of military families. The most important thing. I think that we need to remember. Is that behind? Every man and woman that wears a uniform is a family and that makes sacrifices and bears burdens that the average American has no concept of and it's up to us the people that are aware of it the people that that are in the trenches. If you will you know helping our veterans helping our are active servicemen and women and remind people that that these families you know need help sometimes too and you know when a loved one is in the hospital. You know. It's up to Austin to make sure that these families are taking care of these are America's families now and when they give the ultimate sacrifice store on the family loses a loved one in line It's up to us to remember. What the sacrifices that have been made on our behalf and that is what this weekend is about not about barbecues not about the about three day weekends and and no zoom calls this weekend but But most importantly About wreck remembering those who have paid the ultimate price for freedom and the reason we could have those barbecues reason. We can have a dinner with our friends and our families is because the sacrifices people have made on behalf of our country at Jeff. How Long Jeff Cathy?
