Today is a day to remember those who fell while serving their country. Those who went, knowing that they may never return. They went anyway. They served because they believed in something bigger themselves. They served because they wanted to build a better life through education and the armed forces offered that opportunity. They served because they had limited options and wanted to make something of themselves. They served to support their families. They served to continue a family tradition. They served out of pride.
Whatever their reason, they made the ultimate sacrifice. And today, we remember them for it.
