They now stand the eternal watch, protect our hallowed ground and guard the sacred ground of our allies. They may not be with us in body, but are definitely with us in spirit and freedom.
These heroes all, soldier, sailor, airman, and marine, I call brother and sister...comrades in arms, even if time spans generations. We would do it all over again, because we knew it was right. You have my eternal gratitude.
To our currently serving troops, I could not forget you on this day either. I say thank you from the bottom of my heart, from one veteran to another. I know first hand the sacrifice you are making on this day, and I appreciate each and every one of you for doing your duty with honor for our country.
You are not forgotten...
