Tribute

"The finest tribute we can pay
Unto our dead hero[es] today
Is not of speech or roses red, 
But living, throbbing hearts instead,
That shall renew the pledge they sealed
With death upon the battlefield:
That freedom's flag shall bear no stain
And free men wear no tyrant's chain."
-Edgar A. Guest
I am thankful today for the brave soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation.

May we honor their sacrifice by treasuring the freedom they fought and died for.
