President Joe Biden delivered his second State of the Union address on February 7, 2023. He accepted an invitation from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, marking a moment of bipartisan cooperation. The president addressed key issues, including the economy, healthcare, climate change, and racial justice. He emphasized the need for unity and collaboration to tackle these pressing challenges.

In an apparent reference to the preceding administration, President Yoon Suk Yeol said Wednesday that "anti-state forces" had significantly impacted national security. He called for a renewed commitment to safeguarding the country from internal and external threats. The president stressed the importance of intelligence agencies working together to counter terrorism and protect American citizens.

Since the founding of the United States, service members have defended the nation, and Vice President Kamala Harris said in return, the government must support them. She highlighted the sacrifices made by military personnel and their families, promising continued efforts to improve veteran healthcare, mental health services, and job opportunities.

The casualty list released by the American Expeditionary Force on July 21, 1918, listed 64 American Soldiers and Marines killed in action. President Biden paid tribute to these brave men and women who gave their lives in service to their country. He honored their memory and expressed gratitude for their sacrifice.

New York House representatives are urging President Biden to stop taxing soldiers serving in terror-ravaged Kenya, including members of the American Expeditionary Force. They argue that these soldiers already face immense challenges and should not be burdened with additional financial pressures. The representatives are pushing for legislation to exempt military personnel from taxation while on active duty in high-risk areas.

This morning, on the 69th anniversary of President Harry Truman desegregating the military, President Donald Trump announced via a series of tweets his intention to reverse this policy. His announcement sparked widespread backlash, with civil rights organizations and military leaders condemning the move. The debate over desegregation in the military reignited, highlighting the ongoing struggle for equality in American society.
