Lee Greenwood’s Message to Veterans: ‘America Believes in What You Have Done’

By Movieguide® Contributor

“God Bless the U.S.A.” singer Lee Greenwood, an advocate for veterans across the nation, is sharing a message of hope with service members this Memorial Day.

“We are a beacon of hope for the rest of the world,” Greenwood said on Fox News. “There are other countries that embrace freedom, but no other country has the ability to protect it. To go after those who would defeat it and destroy it. We have some conflict inside our borders, and we have people running across our borders who shouldn’t be.”

“But I still believe that if America continues to live by the doctrines we started with, and that’s the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,” he continued. “If we live by those documents, no matter if the administration changes or not, we can move on as an American public. And I have great faith in that.”

Greenwood then gave a message of encouragement to all veterans.

“My encouragement to veterans is to know this, I’ve toured this country now for 40 years, and all of America believes in what you have done,” he said. “They believe you are wearing the uniform of America, and we are all proud of our veterans.”

Greenwood often travels throughout the U.S. to meet different servicemen and women and share messages of hope.

“Meeting servicemen like Chief Warrant Officer Chris Jones of the Strike Fighter Squadron will always be the greatest inspiration,” Greenwood wrote in a post on Instagram.

For National Police Week, Greenwood posted a photo with three police officers and captioned the photo, “Join me in celebrating our men and women in blue who put their lives on the line every day for this great nation.”
