Former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has persistently expressed his love for the country which fulfilled his dreams, the U.S. While he has undoubted patriotism for his Austrian homeland and also served in the Army, he also reveres his chosen nation to the core in which he has earned his citizenship now. In the recent edition of his newsletter, Arnold’s Pump Club, the star athlete took a moment on a national holiday to realize the efforts of heroes who gave their lives to protect the nation during the Civil War.

Per Arnold’s newsletter, the 75-year-old legend let out his patriotism for the nation in front of his massive subscriber base. Reflecting on the past, he revealed that Union General John Logan issued General Orders #11 in 1868, to mark it as the Decoration Day for the war dead. He did so, to encourage others to keep their light burning within them, even when several citizens might struggle to do the same.

Furthermore, the Austrian Oak mindfully added that the celebrations don’t just call for a barbeque and a pool party but to honor and support the families of those heroes and “to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice.” He urged others to join him on the occasion to realize the contributions of those who’ve made the nation into “the shining beacon of opportunity that lit the way for so many dreamers like me.”
