I think now, looking back we not only fought the enemy on the field of battle, we fought dissent within our homeland . . . That war is long over, but we continue fighting it's demons. But be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to our fallen brothers that we shall never forget that their loss was not in vain, but for the great cause of freedom our job is to lead good lives in their memory to remind others that freedom is not free.
