Presenter: Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld
October 24, 2006
Q Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, what message do you have for the troops now serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and what message for their families?

SEC. RUMSFELD: Well, anyone who has the privilege that I do to work with them and to travel around the world and meet them and talk to them and watch their impressive work knows how professional they are, how dedicated they are, how courageous they are. And I would add a word about their families. Their families have the same pride and the same dedication, and our country is certainly fortunate and I am deeply grateful [Inaudible] wherever they serve, and want to express my respect for them.
