"Today, the United States stands as a beacon of liberty and democratic strength before the community of nations. We are resolved to stand firm against those who would destroy the freedoms we cherish. We are determined to achieve an enduring peace -- a peace with liberty and with honor. This determination, this resolve, is the highest tribute we can pay to the many who have fallen in the service of our Nation."
~~ President Ronald Reagan, Memorial Day 1981
"Only 2 defining forces have ever offered to die for you…. Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom."
~~ Lt. Col. Grant L. Rosensteel, Jr., USAF
To our fallen heroes, I offer my heartfelt thanks.
