Today we honor and remember those who lost their lives in defense of this nation.  We honor the war dead, those who gave that “last full measure of devotion,” as well as 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 2,228 have been killed with 17,764 wounded.

With an all-volunteer military, the bravery and valor of the fallen bring honor to America in these uncertain times.  Please keep them in mind while enjoying the barbeque or the beach today.
