2. SOUNDBITE (English) Melania Trump, US First Lady:
"When preparing for this stop I learned that this base is more than a hundred years old and has a long history of excellence. I also learned that the airmen and soldiers in this room have set up after natural disasters like Hurricane Michael and that many of you have recently returned home from deployment. I'm honored to be able to say welcome home. And thank you for answering the call of duty. I have said this before but it's worth repeating. We know that we are free because you are brave. And I speak on behalf of my husband when I tell you we are forever grateful for your service."
