  • On Your Angel Day

    I don’t know where to begin to express my gratitude to someone so courageous, but I will try.

    I want to thank you for taking up the call to serve your country so honorably and I want to thank you for the ultimate sacrifice that any man can make – your precious life. Please know that these mere words come from my heart and I mean ever one of them.

    No matter how others may feel you did not die in vain, nor was the war senseless. You and your brothers-in-arms whose names are engraved on The Wall have and will be an influence for good in this country. You and the others have influenced the youth of our country – this is shown by the remembrances these young people have left for all of you on this site. You all have touch a cord in them and they will remember your sacrifice all of their lives; so, your deaths are not in vain.

    I am proud of you and the others and can hardly wait for the day when I will be able to meet you and give my thanks to you all.

    You courageous men have touched me to my very soul with your selfless actions and I will spend the rest of my day honoring you all in whatever way that I can. Thank you for the bottom of my heart!!

    On this your Angel Day I leave this quote for you it’s from the movie We Were Soldiers:

    To fallen soldiers, let us sing,
    Where no rockets fly or bullets wing
    Our broken brothers let us bring
    To the Mansions of the Lord

    No more bleeding, no more fight
    No prayers pleading through the night,
    Just divine embrace, eternal light
    In the Mansions of the Lord

    Where no mothers cry and no children weep
    We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
    Through the ages safely keep
    The Mansions of the Lord
