Dedicated to Those Who Served and Died
May Their Sacrifice Forever Inspire Freedom

I was that which others did not want to be, I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness should I fail. I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love. I have cried, hoped, and prayed, but most of all, I know that some day I would be able to say that I was proud and honored to serve my country.
