AMERICA'S TRUE HEROES

American Battle Monuments Commission
>BR>
They fought and died to preserve our freedoms and our way of life which we too often take for granted. Their service to their country is incalculable to those of us who were never there. They deserve not only our gratitude, but also our honor and admiration.

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill,
that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend,
oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
President John F. Kennedy, Inaugural address January 20, 1961
