Unfortunately, since that fateful day in September 2001 much more American Heros from throughout the Nation will have given of themselves, sacrificing all to defend our freedoms. Their courage and determination exhibited on the battlefields of the middle east and elsewhere were not in vain.
We owe all of our fallen heroes a debt of gratitude and to keep their legacy and memory alive, to give thanks to our military service men and women for their valor and willingness to serve our Country. Their legacy will live on in the hearts of those who knew them and shared in their struggle to protect our Country. For those of us who carry on their legacy, it is our obligation to honor their memory.
