It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived. — General George S. Patton
They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast,
And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
They fell, but o’er their glorious grave
Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save.
– Francis Marion Crawford
Green sods are all their monuments; and yet it tells
A nobler history than pillared piles,
Or the eternal pyramids.
– James Gates Percival
As many of you know, I am a proud military spouse, sister, and friend. I'm taking this long weekend to spend time with my family, grateful that my husband is home, but I will also be taking a moment to give thanks to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice and those that continue to give service to this country. -Anna
