They represent the United States of America.
They come from all walks of life. They represent all ethnicities.
They are men
They serve while they are in the prime of their lives.
They remember long ago battles, friendships, and harrowing experiences. Some are physically, mentally or spiritually wounded.
All wear the scars of having seen things most others couldn’t imagine in their worst nightmares.
They are our brothers and our sisters, our neighbors and friends. Some were taken prisoner of war, and some are still missing in action.
We are free because they answered the call to the responsibility of not just caring for their loved ones at home, but also for those people they’ll never know, and yes, even defending their enemies.
All gave some...
and some gave all.
