I gave my National Defense Medal to Mr. Cliven Bundy this evening. He was very touched by it. I gave it to him in honor of his brave stance. He not only stood up against tyranny for his family, his ranch, fellow ranchers and fellow Nevadans, but on behalf of all freedom loving Americans who are tired of this massive and corrupt central government. He truly emulates what it is to be awarded the medal for National Defense. I have no doubt in my mind that it is the most fitting and appropriate gift I could bestow upon this great man that history has to offer. That family, the Bundy's are truly amazing and Cliven, the patriarch, is such a sweet man. He stood up in defense of all of us and I am more than grateful and appreciative for the stance he has taken and continuously takes. Special shout out to Booda. Glad I met you friend. You are amazing for sticking by the Bundy's for this long and providing the necessary security Mr. Bundy needs and deserves.
This touched us to the deepest of our feelings. The men and women who sacrifice so much to protect our rights of freedom continue to amaze us. It is a honor to have their honor.
