We Remember

For all the fallen men and women in the armed services, we remember.

We remember how you fought for our freedom, our safety and our country. We remember that you were sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers. We remember that you were loved, you were brave and that you are missed.

We remember and we salute you.
