Happy Easter in South Korea. It's a joy to be with you all.>>
>> We're proud of you and we are grateful for your service to the United States of America on this frontier of freedom that is South Korea.>> The attention that this part of the world has gotten from people back home is probably no surprise to all of you who are gathered here today.
This morning's provocation from the North is just the latest reminder of the risks each one of you face 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
