"This is the story of boys who became men. Every day, they fought for what they believed in, what they valued, what they felt their families needed. They fought the hardest wars in American History. In 1775, groups of average, everyday men came together to go with others, to lead a Continental Army across the valleys of North America, to end the flight form terror. From the coast of the Atlantic, to the crossing of the Delaware, these men knew what was at hand. They knew their fate, their fate was life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. While many did not get to see this, their spirits live within the grounds and words that makes this country great.
This country is found on their blood, their lives. From the past to the modern the power they gave out during battle intimidates the enemy against liberty. In WWI to WWI, these men were given the chance to show what they were all about: freedom. Korea was a war of tragedy, but it showed there was dedication. Vietnam, young boys no older than 19, gave their lives. Their own lives haven't even started. Many have lost their lives and are still walking amongst us. From the time we grew as a nation of prosperity, new evils grew along the side. The Middle East is the current focal point for preserving peace. Each day, many of our young men and women die for us to be free.
You may have never served as a combatant, nor do you plan on to, but remember those who have. If freedom is at a point where the threat of it leaving you is imminent, remember, those who have fought for it, and fight for it for them. Do all that you can to preserve what those before you wanted preserved"
