At ease, Soldiers, you've earned your rest. For the families and loved ones left behind, there'll be none ...

                                      Until my dying breath, I will
                                      not forget sacricices, paid.
                                       The blood of our soldiers
                                       demands we remember:
                                       July, the deadliest month.

Outstanding and moving write Karla

"The final Tear"
Tap is played,
the lone piper
paces his final steps
upon our hero's grave
with a farewell hymn
Of Amazing Grace.......

Every Sunday on the beach in Santa Monica they put a marker in the sand for each soldier killed. It's quite an array of markers these days. Really brings it home. Very moving.
