“We remember those who were called to give all that a person can give, and we remember those who were willing to make that sacrifice if asked to do so in the line of duty, even if it never has been. Above all, we remember the dedication and bravery with which they all ennobled their nation by becoming champions of a noble cause. – Ronald Reagan.
