Memorial Day

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
John 15:13
In all of the USA's wars, 848,163 Americans have died in combat, with another 433,161 dying from "other" (disease, wounds, etc.) leaving us with a total of 1,321,612 deaths.

Members of the US military sacrifice a great deal, traveling to places far from home and family, often a place where someone is doing their utmost best to kill them.

 No matter which service a person chooses to join, be it Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, or Coast Guard, that person has chosen a path which could lead to their death.
Let us not forget those who gave the greatest sacrifice
