With beautiful blue skies above and the morning warmth just right, thousands of San Diegans including many veterans, servicemen/women and their families gathered outside the Veterans Museum and Memorial Center at the San Diego Park to commemorate Memorial Day.
Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the party’s 2008 candidate, Sen. John McCain, led the crowd in paying tribute to members of the armed services who paid the ultimate sacrifices in the defense of freedom.
Romney pledged to maintain an American military unequaled by others to keep the nation safe and protect its interests abroad.
“I wish I could tell you that the world is a safe place today. It’s not,” he said mentioning that Iran, China, Russia and terrorists are threats to world peace and safety.
