M elancholy notes from "Taps" is played by a lone bugler.
E loquently, the song pays tribute to those who were there.
M en in uniform salute, tears running down their faces.
O vercome with emotion, they silently remember.
R emembering battles fought, recalling each friendship made.
I ntimate with death, they learned painful lessons about life.
A ll gave something, but some of them paid the ultimate price.
L egions of heroes is who we are honoring today.
D efenders of freedom,
A vailable at a moment's notice...
Y es, I remember...and I am grateful.

BRAVA! I am sure you are touched
every Memorial Day by being in
the Air Force yourself for awhile. The Fine people
who paid the ultimate price are looking down from heaven
now and smiling so. They are thinking of you!
