Today we remember those who fought for our freedom. Leaving the comfort of their families, friends and communities, they fought for their lives and ours. Many never returned; and those who did were never the same. We thank you all for your sacrifice.
For all the families who watched as their sons and daughters faded into the unknown horizon, taking with them all their hopes and dreams… Would they return? Would their worn eyes and tattered hearts ever erase the horrors that they would see?
Today we remember. Today we thank you.
