Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. ~Daniel Webster The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men. ~Minot J. Savage But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye. ~Thomas Dunn English Better than honor and glory, and History's iron pen, Was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men. ~Richard Watson Gilder A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. ~Joseph Campbell These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead. ~Robert G. Ingersoll How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~Maya Angelou Peace to each manly soul that sleepeth; Rest to each faithful eye that weepeth... ~Thomas Moore SPecial Thanks to all of them men and women who have served this country so proudly. It is something I could never bring myself to do. Thank you for protecting us in times of hostility from the mongers of hatred and disruption. Without you, we couldnot be us. Best wishes to the families of these brave soldiers who lost their lives, and the ones who are still currently worried about on a daily basis. ~B.A. Armstrong
