It’s hard to fathom the sacrifice those who have died in battle have made. Because of their gift, we get to enjoy freedoms few in other parts of the world have ever known. Let us all remember and honor those who have made this sacrifice for us. Here are just a few quotes that pay just a little honor to the men and women who have laid down their lives:

"Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. it flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it." — Unknown

"Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them." — FDR

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived."— George S. Patton

"The patriot's blood is the seed of freedom's tree." — Thomas Campbell

“America without her soldiers would be like God without His angels.” — Claudia Pemberton

"We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue." — James Garfield
