Today in the United States we remember those who have given their lives in the defense of this country. Many who have gone into battle did not come home. Giving ones life is the ultimate sacrifice. Those who wear the uniform of their country are to be respected and honored because they are going into harms way. Many families mourn those who died on the battlefield and may they be comforted. May their loved ones and friends be remembered on this and every day.
To those heroes who wore dog tags a uniform and combat boots your service is appreciated today and everyday. Thank you.

Thank’s to the President and the White House for making this happen to honor the four Marines and one Sailor killed last Thursday in Chattanooga. A very fitting tribute.
