Dempsey Speaks To Gold Star Mothers

General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke to American Gold Star Mothers on Sunday during their 75th annual national convention in Arlington, VA.

"I would never ever suggest that I know what you've been through," said Dempsey, to the mothers of some of our men and women killed at war. "But I am thrilled that you're here going through it together, so well done to the Gold Star Moms, Gold Star Dads and Gold Star Families associations."

"Those of us still serving love you and we will do everything we can to honor the sacrifices that your loved ones have made."

Here's the video of General Dempsey's remarks:

  1. General Dempsey was my son's Commanding Officer when he was in Iraq, both good Armor guys. When I was able to speak to him, he remembered my son and the (strange) circumstances surrounding his death. He explained that he has a box on his desk with 132 cards about each of the soldiers lost under his command. He has not forgotten our fallen.

    I am so please I was in attendance. Oh, and he sings great, too! :-)
