For Veteran's Day:

Thank you to all of the volunteers that support our soldiers in the field and in the hospital like Books For Soldiers.

Thank you to all of the spouses and families that support their servicemembers.

Most of all, thank you to everyone that has served or is currently serving our country.

The Young Dead Soldiers
Archibald MacLeish
 
The young dead soldiers do not speak.
Nevertheless they are heard in the still houses.
(Who has not heard them?)...

They say,
We were young. We have died. Remember us.

They say,
We have done what we could
But until it is finished it is not done.

They say,
We have given our lives
But until it is finished no one can know what our lives gave.

They say,
Our deaths are not ours,
They are yours,
They will mean what you make them.

They say,
Whether our lives, and our deaths were for peace and a new hope
Or for nothing
We cannot say.
It is you who must say this.

They say,
We leave you our deaths,
Give them their meaning.
