Congressman Mike Johnson talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright about Veterans Day, specifically paying tribute to America's servicemen and woman.

Johnson, who was just reelected for a second term in Congress, tells KEEL listeners "that freedom's not free. Do not take for granted that the next generation knows or understands. (Veterans Day) is a great time to take a moment to remind a young person what that actually means, what these sacrifices have meant, why America is exceptional and why a strong US military the the key to that.'

The Congressman also underlines the importance of America as a defender of freedom: "There are so many places around the world...where the only thing standing between tyranny and liberty is the United States military. We are the vanguard of freedom. We hold the line."
