I Will Not Forget -- Memorial Day 2010

On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation! ~ Thomas William Parsons

Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. ~ Daniel Webster

With the tears a Land hath shed, Their graves should ever be green. ~ Thomas Bailey Aldrich

They fell, but o'er their glorious grave Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save. ~ Francis Marion Crawford

Perform, then, this one act of remembrance before this Day passes - Remember there is an army of defense and advance that never dies and never surrenders, but is increasingly recruited from the eternal sources of the American spirit and from the generations of American youth. ~ W.J. Cameron
