But this day actually has a much more somber purpose. It is on this day that we pause to reflect upon the sacrifices made by men and women in uniform who have died in defense of the United States in wars or other military service, including those who have yet to return.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
-Winstson Churchill, 20 April 1940
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
