We commemorate and honor the men and women who died during military service. We also express our gratitude to all those serving and protecting today.

From the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs:

The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on Life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On Fame's eternal camping-ground 5
Their silent tents are spread,
And Glory guards, with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.

(Bivouac Of The Dead, by Theodore O'Hara)
