Today we honor the remembrance of those who lost their lives in defense of this nation.  We honor the war dead, those who gave that “last full measure of devotion,” and their families and friends.  In the recent wars America has fought:

Iraq:  (2003-2011) a total of 4,486 Americans were lost with 32,223 wounded.

Afghanistan:  (2001-Present) to date 1,985 have been killed with 15,322 wounded.

With an all-volunteer military, the bravery and valor of the fallen bring honor to America in these unstable times.  Keep that in mind while enjoying the barbeque today.
