Having served in the Army, I understand what it's like for soldiers when they are away from home.

Soldiers -- as well as those who served in the Air Force, Navy, or Marines -- think of those back home.

Most come back home. But not all do.

Over the years, many who wore our country's uniform gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Some of you know some of those that gave their lives for this country, for you and me.

Some of you don't know any one who lost his life in service to our country. Those are unknown to you.

But they were known to someone.

Today, honor those that gave their lives in service of our country. They deserve to be remembered.
