Obama Speech about Cpl. Matthew Lembke

by claudia

Last July, a speech writer for President Obama contacted Carolyn to get permission to use Matt's story in a speech the President would be giving at the Marine Corps barracks in Washington DC. The speech was not televised and we never heard if the story was actually used or not. Yesterday, our casualty affairs officer brought us a DVD with this segment of the speech. Carolyn has posted it on her Facebook page and on Youtube.

Here's the link to Obama's speech:
