In Memory of Supreme Sacrifice for Country

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.


“Ode of Remembrance” from Laurence Binyon’s poem, "For the Fallen" (1914)

Their sacrifices, their pain, their selfless courage must continue to burn like an eternal flame in our memory.
                                                                   
Gen. Colin Powell

When we mourn for such men who have died, ....we should thank God that such men were born.

                                        Gen. George S. Patton Jr.

As I wept inside, I asked, Lord, where did we get such men?  And I was reminded, if a nation is to be great, if a nation truly is to be the land of the free, that it also must be the home of the brave.

                                                                                   Gen. Paul X. Kelley

"In visiting the graves and family, in reading the headstones and creating a mind's vision of these veterans, they are all so much more than merely a listed name."

The Very Soul of a Nation is its Heroes

We were soldiers once and young...Remember us."

For their sense of duty continues to preserve our past, safeguard our present, and sustain our future.

“We stand on the backs of their sacrifice. Their history is our tradition, as long as there are Americans to remember...”

 

 

In Profound Gratitude
