"MAY THEY REST IN PEACE"

OUR VETERANS ANSWERED THE CALL AS DID THEIR FOREFATHERS.
THEY GATHERED STRENGTH AND MATURITY WHEN CALLED TO DUTY.
GOING TO A FOREIGN LAND THEY SHARED IN ITS PAST AND ITS
FUTURE. THEIR LIVES WERE AN INSPIRATION FOR OTHERS AND
THEIR DEEDS WERE WORKS FOR A BETTER WORLD. IN SILENCE AND
CIRCUMSPECTION THEY GUARDED OUR DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES OF
FREEDOM FOR ALL MANKIND. WE SALUTE YOU OUR HONORED CITIZENS.
