The Perimeter is a place warriors will always seek- even for eternity. Just gaze out at our National Cemeteries, for out there, on the outer edge, ever so diligent, are those on the Perimeter.
James R. Lawson 1967
Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices, because these sacrifices, the dawn of justice and freedom throughout the world slowly casts its gleam across the horizon.
President Harry S. Truman 1945
They fought together as brothers-in-arms, they died together and now they step side by side. To them we have a solemn obligation.
Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Sept. 1945
If you are able, save them a place inside you, and save one backward glance when you are leaving, for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may, or may not
Written on January 1, 1970 at Dak To, Vietnam by Major Michael Davis O'Donnell
Died in Vietnam War March 1970
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty."
January 20, 1961 President John F. Kennedy
Our flag is not just cloth. It is a legion of souls. The fabric of our flag, its every thread, is made with the American soldiers' spirit, with the living saluting the dead. It is tattered dungarees, buckskin, battle dress, or fatigues. It waves abroad and at home in spirit[,] in heart and in soul, through the generations. It is the heart of the warrior, reluctant or not, sacrificing for freedom.
Michael D. "Moon" Mullins, Vietnam Vet
In respect to all our veterans
