Individual Honor, National Character
Vice President Dick Cheney greets veterans after addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars 103rd National Convention in Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 26, 2002. .In the military, you devoted yourselves to a cause above self-interest, served with a firm sense of duty and developed personal standards that make you an example for your families and your fellow citizens. The daughter of an Army Air Corpsman described growing up with her father, and the values she learned from him without even knowing it. As she recalls, .Honesty, integrity, hard work, personal responsibility, and perseverance were all around me and I absorbed them almost imperceptibly.. Our veterans have had a similar effect on the entire nation.. said the Vice President in his remarks.
