To Our Country’s Service Men and Women Past and Present,
The weight of the world at least
That weight would only be increased
Beyond what mortal men would dare to bear
Even though the weight was great
They stormed the beach and then they crashed the gate
And after there was music in the air (The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, They Will Need Music)
From every generation of American came a select few people who put their lives on the line to establish, maintain then preserve the freedom that is unique to our country. Thanks to your courage and determination, the closest folks like myself will ever come to dangers like many of you have faced is in history books. For that, myself, my family, and the entire country are forever grateful.
