When you go home
Tell them of us and say
For your tomorrow
We gave our today
|Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Arlington National Cemetery|
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
~In Flanders Fields, Lt. Col. John McCrae
|Arlington National Cemetery|
Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.
