Remember Our Fallen Soldiers

“Yet, we must try to honor them — not for their sakes alone, but for our own.  And if words cannot repay the debt we owe these men, surely with our actions we must strive to keep faith with them and with the vision that led them to battle and to final sacrifice.  Our first obligation to them and ourselves is plain enough:  The United States and the freedom for which it stands, the freedom for which they died, must endure and prosper.  Their lives remind us that freedom is not bought cheaply.  It has a cost; it imposes a burden.  And just as they whom we commemorate were willing to sacrifice, so too must we — in a less final, less heroic way — be willing to give of ourselves.”

— Ronald Reagan (May 31, 1982)
