“America's veterans have served their country with the belief that democracy and freedom are ideals to be upheld around the world. “ — John Doolittle
In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow, Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago, We lived, felt the dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you, from failing hands, we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow, In Flanders fields. In Flanders Fields by John McCrae

That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
