As the daughter of a 25-year veteran of the armed forces I am incredibly thankful for the sacrifices our women and men have made in Iraq and continue to make in Afghanistan.
I dare say there may be some men and women in the Armed Forces who are so decent that they would say: Give the Iraqi people money we do not want to be paid back. That is the strength of our country.
Thank you to all for your prayers and good wishes. It gave me the strength to persevere and warmed my heart.
I have great respect and understanding for military commitment due to my own family's involvement with the armed forces.
I have many friends and family members who have served (or are currently serving) in our nation's Armed Forces. I have such a profound respect for what they do day in and day out.

The Disarmament Conference has become the focal point of a great struggle between anarchy and world order... between those who think in terms of inevitable armed conflict and those who seek to build a universal and durable peace.
