Heroes

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived."
-General George S. Patton, Jr

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize and remember those of the past. Their valor and service is honored.
Their memory lives and they continue to inspire. We thank you.
Heroes live forever.
