This day is never more poignant and meaningful than during wartime as we contemplate the young men and women who defend the freedom we hold so dearly. Over 4,000 children have lost one of their parents since September 11, 2011. Each of them cherishes the respect and admiration we pay to their fallen heroes … and ours … who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Our soldiers don’t choose to “wonder why”, they simply “do their duty” which they’ve accepted as their mission and commitment to this country.
Take a moment from your busy day . . . shed a few tears as I always do . . . and remember the sacrifices they make, and have made through the years, at great risk but with an unwavering commitment to the service to their country.
