The Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Remember as you go about your day that people have fought and died for you. They have shed their blood protecting your freedoms and liberties. Do not forget the untold sacrifices made by those standing between us and those bent on destroying our ideals and way of life. The price for freedom is eternal vigilance and it is regretful that lives must be lost to preserve our basic rights.
Remember them and their gift to all of us. They died in service to the preservation of this country, wore our uniform, saluted our flag, honored our traditions. They signed on the line to protect this nation and by doing so put themselves in harm's way. Many, a great too many, were young and their deaths spark the question of what could have been had they lived. Those that serve and die want to be remembered.

Light a candle. Say a prayer. Share a story. Most of all remember our fallen for surely there are no greater heroes in this life than those who gave everything for us all.

The Soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.

History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.
