We Will Never Forget!
Speech delivered at Memorial Day Service at Liberty Veterans Cemetery, Fresno, California

Editor/Publisher, Perspicacity Press

THE NUMBERS of courageous young Americans who have lost their lives in defense of liberty, from the time of the American Revolution to the present day, are almost beyond comprehension. The numbers of those lost, sometimes, in a single battle stagger the imagination. Many others were wounded, or suffered as prisoners of war, or endured great hardships and all, as President Reagan said, because "they loved America very much."

Yet as every one of you here today know all too well, it is not the numbers that matter, but the individuals. Their lives. Their hopes. Their dreams. Their courage and valor. Their personal sacrifice. We remember, and we honor, and we grieve for each one individually. And each one has his own story.

In Behalf of a Grateful Nation

With Photos by JoAnne Green

"The more we are seen to show honor and respect and to express an eternal debt of gratitude for those who have served their country in the armed forces, and particularly for those who died in defense of their country, the more those feelings of honor and gratitude will spread to others. It is hard for young people especially to embrace or demonstrate such feelings if to do so is seen as uncool or unpopular. Therefore, the more young people see others openly paying their respects to veterans, the more inclined they will be to view such behavior as acceptable and desirable, and the more likely to emulate it. "
