It is always sad to see our fellow American leave this earth. I am proud that I have been a witness to such a grand event. All of the soldiers that we have glorified today are well appreciated. Not only are they proud soldiers of our country, but they were also family to those that they have left behind. I hope that they can find peace in the afterlife, they have served our country well, and for that we honor them.
