We are in good hands. Our vice president Mike Pence is a man of God. He loves our nation and our troops. A complete change from the last 8 years.
Now he is spending his Easter holiday with U.S. and Republic of Korea troops and their families as the first stop on a 10-day tour that marks his first official travel to the Asia-Pacific region as Vice President of the United States.
The Vice President and Mrs. Pence attended an Easter Sunday service at a Yongsan military base church. After the service, they moved to a room upstairs in the church where military troops were gathered for a meal. From there Pence brought greetings and a message from commander-in-chief President Donald Trump.
He said: ”I spoke to the president earlier today and I spoke to him on the way over, and he asked me to be here, and he told me in no uncertain terms to make sure I told all of you ‘we’re proud of you and we’re grateful for your service.” Pence said that under Pres. Trump’s leadership, “our resolve has never been stronger, our commitment to this historic alliance with the courageous people of South Korea has never been stronger and with your help and God’s help, freedom will ever prevail on this peninsula.”
For the record, shortly before Pence’s arrival North Korea conducted a failed missile launch.
He then continued: “This morning’s provocation from the North is just the latest reminder of the risks each one of you faces every day in the defense of the freedom of the people of South Korea and the defense of America in this part of the world. Your willingness to step forward, to serve, to stand firm without fear inspires our nation and inspires the world, and it’s an honor for us to share this meal with you today. Thank you for your service.”
“We look out today and we see courage writ large in the soldiers and the families gathered here, and I just want to assure you on behalf of the people of the United States and in these troubled times in this part of the world. Your courage and your valor still amazes the American people.
“So we just wanted to come and say thank you, thank you for your service, and thank you general for your leadership and the leadership in service of all those represented here. Carrying on a tradition, and a commitment to freedom here on this peninsula that is now more than six decades in the running, and succeeding, far beyond those who carve this free society in this ancient land could possibly have imagined perhaps. It’s the American soldier, shoulder to shoulder with the Korean people, who fought for, and won the freedom more than six decades ago.”
What a great surprise and blessing! This is an administration that really cares. Do you think Obama or Biden would have gone to the Korean peninsula the day of Missile or Nuclear test? Of course NOT! Over the years Obama did nothing for our Military!
Way to go Vice President Pence!
