On this memorial day, and every other day. I hold high, the memory of all who have served and the millions still serving. My heart is filled with pride and respect for the honor of your sacrifices. For the families and friends of those who paid the ultimate price, who gave all, I hold you high on a pedestal of preeminent respect.

For those who have left a part of themselves on the field of battle, whether at home or abroad. I see your wounds, even the invisible ones. Make peace with the ghosts, both, those who wail and shriek, as well as the silent, sullen, and disconsolate. The later often the most terrorizing. They may never leave your side, yet I hope an amity can be found.
