A Soldier’s Story

With grateful hearts, we honor our country’s heros who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Just in Europe alone, over 100,000 American lives were sacrificed to keep the flame of liberty alive and to rescue millions from wicked despots. Add to that the rest of the world. Each soldier who never made it back has a story that could be told and has left behind grieving loved ones. What would the pages of history have written without this sacrifice?
