Most of the people who went off to war were just barely out of
childhood when they died – 17, 18, 19, 20 years old…college age.
They were probably excited about life and war and the prospect
of beating back the enemy when they packed their kit for the last time.

They'd left their families and friends, their girls, wives, sisters and
Brothers, and some left children. Some wanted to go, but many
would probably have rather stayed home with their loved ones.
They went away and they served, and they died.

They are now memories in the minds of their families, friends, and
a few historians. We'd like them to be memories in your minds too.
Remember these people and all those who died defending our
way of life. We owe them a debt. We can't give them back their youth,
their families, or their lives. But we can give them a minute of thanks
And a piece of our hearts…
