In Solemn Tribute to Our Fallen Heroes
"Many of today's heroes died in wars that united our nation and some in wars that divided it. Some in battles won and some in battles lost. Some as infantrymen and some on a supply truck. Some who died in a blaze of heroic glory and some quietly and alone stricken by a disease. Some were buried with full military honors and some with only their bloodstained uniforms as a burial shroud."
