Time to drop your rucks and relax awhile, we got the next few patrols so you may rest in peace Brothers. From the cold of the Potomac River to the mountains of Afghanistan, and everywhere in between, you will never be forgotten and we will never allow you sacrifice to be downplayed or dismissed.
Take a moment to pay respect to those that have fallen to allow all of us to have a day off of work. Without those of our Armed Forces that gave the ultimate sacrifice none of this would happen. That is the true reason for the day.
