USMC LtGen John Kelly Speech
On Sat. November 13, 2010 at the Hyatt Under the Arch in St Louis, MO, LtGen John Kelly delivered a speech to a packed house that would become one of the most memorable moments in the lives of everyone in the room. Just 4 days after his son, 1stLt Robert Kelly, was killed in action in Afghanistan, General Kelly came to St. Louis to address the crowd gathered there to celebrate the birth of the United States Marine Corps.
With permission from the family, the video of LtGen Kelly delivering the speech can be found below. The transcript of the speech can also be found below. Please forward this to your true American patriots and all those who respect our military service members. Our deepest condolences go out to the Kelly family and all those who have lost loved ones in combat. Thank you to all who’ve served, those who continue to serve and to those who have given their all in the defense of our freedom. Semper Fidelis!
