Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
Veterans are a symbol of what makes our nation great, and we must never forget all they have done to ensure our freedom.
Without memory, there is no culture. Without memory there would be no civilization, no future.
