On this Memorial Day 2002, we wish to thank you and your "buddies" 
for all that you have done for this wonderful country of ours. 
If it were not for your deeds and sacrifices this would not today be the "Land of the Free".
Words cannot begin to express our gratitude.

 You are all HEROES. 
You have sacrificed your youth and in many cases your lives and your friends to insure 
that "this country will not perish from this earth". 
My hat, indeed the hat of all America is off to you. 
Not just today, but every day for what you have done in the preservation of FREEDOM.
