Today, we would like to convey our most fervent appreciation and respect for the fallen soldiers of our United States Armed Forces. We are forever indebted to those who made the utmost sacrifice for the citizens of our great nation. We also want to pay homage to the families of our veterans, who raised men and women who wanted and chose to lay down their lives so others may live. We will never squander nor lose sight of our freedom. We understand to whom that right derived. Our soldiers granted us the privilege of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That sacrifice will never be lost or forgotten. May the legacy of our Armed Forces live on forever.
