Norman E. Arflack of Frankfort thanked the veterans "for all they have done to ensure our country remains the beacon of freedom to the rest of the world.Just over a year ago, deliberate and deadly terrorist attacks struck our country," he said."This enemy attacked not just our people, but all freedom-loving people everywhere in the world."
"The evil we face today has no country, no boundaries, and hides among civilian populations to prevent their own destruction," said Arflack, counter drug coordinator of the joint support operations with the Kentucky National Guard.He went on to say that evil does not work within the boundaries of established rules, but uses terrorism in an attempt to shake the foundation of this nation.
Fight will be long and difficult
While President Bush has said it is our duty to find and bring to justice the evil that is committed to destroy us and our way of life, the fight will be long and difficult before we can bring the terrorists to justice, Arflack said."Bush's warning after the September 11th attacks was clear -- there will be no quick conclusions to this struggle, and American patience and persistence will be tested as never before."
Arflack said as the country prepares itself for the long task ahead, Monday was the day to remember those who have served.The state National Guard currently has over 1,500 soldiers serving on some form of active duty, said Arflack, the son of a veteran and the father of a son who is currently on active duty in California.
"Today, we commit ourselves to passing the torch of freedom to future generations so that they can carry it forward," the speaker said."War and conflict never have been and never will be something we would consider pleasant."
He called war a physical misery piled on top of great emotional stress, and ugly with its deadly consequences for the unprepared.
After saluting the men and women who served in one or more of the past wars, Arflack saluted and applauded them.
'When your country called, you answered'
Saying some of the veterans served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and even Afghanistan, the speaker said, "Whether you served in France nearly 60 years ago, in the hills of Korea or the jungles of Vietnam, in the burning sands of Iraq or the mountainous terrain of Afghanistan, you know the face of war.This knowledge is a special bond that allows you to look in each other's eyes and know what it is to serve.When your country called, you answered.When duty required you to stand the line, you did," he said.
Eric K. Shinseki, Army Chief of Staff, Arflack said, "platforms and organizations don't defend this nation, people do."
Veterans then and now ensure our country remains free and remains a beacon of freedom, said Arflack, who has been in the National Guard since 1970 and also served 23 years with the Kentucky State Police before he retired in 1993.He currently is responsible for coordinating the Guard's state, local and federal law enforcement efforts to eliminate illegal drug activity in the state.
He also talked about the brave people who banded together after the terrorist attacks although critics said Americans would fail.But the American people did not fail, Arflack said.
The American warrior removed the oppressive Taliban government and forced the Al-Qaida terrorists to scatter in less than two months.Now the Afghanistan people have claimed their country back and live under a freely elected government with equal representation and most of all, freedom.
"I'd say our servicemen are successfully accomplishing their mission," Arflack said."They continually demonstrate to the world the Army's core values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage.They too, will return someday to American society, and we all will be the better for it.
"Their actions and dedication and their valor shine as an example for the next generation of veterans to carry on.The torch continues to be passed," he said.
Fletcher trumpets justice secretary change, 8 June 2006 [cached]
Fletcher said in a statement that "General Arflack is not only a man of integrity and tremendous values, but he is the epitome of a dedicated public servant."
Pence said in a statement yesterday that Arflack is a good choice.
Arflack switched his voter registration from Democrat to Republican in the weeks after Fletcher's election victory in 2003, and he remains a Republican.
"I identified with the goals and ideals of the Republican Party at that time and that's where I am today," Arflack said in an interview.
Losing the justice job does not affect Pence's salary because he was not paid extra for that role.He makes $99,058 a year and has a housing allowance of $30,000 a year as lieutenant governor.
Arflack, 53, of Frankfort, will take over a cabinet that includes the Kentucky State Police, Department of Corrections and other justice-related agencies.
From 1976 to 1993, he was an officer for the Kentucky State Police, and he has been a member of the Kentucky National Guard for 36 years.
Since Feb. 2, 2003, Arflack has served as deputy commander of the Kentucky Joint Force Headquarters in Frankfort, according to a statement from Fletcher's office.
Arflack holds a bachelor's degree in law enforcement from Eastern Kentucky University, a master's in public administration from Shippensburg University and is a graduate of the Army War College, according to the release.
"I think the Justice Cabinet is doing great things, and I want to continue that.My priorities would include training and equipment," Arflack said.
I have a great deal of respect for all of our commissioners across this cabinet," Arflack said."We're going to sit down and address the short-term goals of each organization and we'll talk about where we need to go.We'll make personnel decisions as are necessary."
Arflack said Fletcher told him that he would have authority over key appointments.
"In the conversations I had with the governor, personnel decisions are mine," Arflack said."I have not been given any mandate to remove anybody."
He said Gambill's resignation "was his decision, not mine."
Kentuckian to head Military Education Interstate Compact, 15 April 2010 [cached]
Norman Arflack will oversee multistate agreement addressing school transfers for military children
Lexington, Ky.-Retired Brig. Gen. Norman E. Arflack, former secretary of the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, will be the first executive director of the Interstate Commission on Educational Opportunity for Military Children.
Arflack, a Frankfort, Ky., resident, becomes the first head of the national commission that administers the multistate compact designed to help students who move with parents from one military base to another and must change schools. The compact eases the transition with policies that address the interstate transfer of enrollment records, graduation requirements, age of enrollment and Advanced Placement courses.
"I've worked throughout my career to serve others-in particular the military men and women of our country," Arflack said. "I understand the impact deployments and reassignments have on military families."
The military compact commission was created in 2007 by The Council of State Governments and the U.S. Department of Defense. Thirty states have signed the compact. Arflack, who begins his work with the commission May 3, will work out of offices in CSG's Lexington, Ky., headquarters.
According to the commission, the average military student faces transition challenges more than twice during high school and most military children transfer nine times during their K-12 years. More than half of all military personnel support families.
"This new interstate compact, adopted in 30 states, gives military children an equal opportunity to succeed, and I look forward to helping make the vision of this compact a reality," said Arflack.
Arflack enlisted in Kentucky's Army National Guard as a private and rose to the rank of brigadier general. He also served as executive director of the National Guard Association of Kentucky and as vice chairman of the board of directors of the National Guard Association of the United States. He served as deputy adjutant general under Kentucky Govs.
In addition to his rise through the ranks of the National Guard, Arflack similarly ascended in the state's law enforcement community. He began his state government career as a state trooper in the 1970s and eventually became secretary of the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet during the Fletcher administration
