"Most of them were boys when they died. They gave up two lives the one they were living and the one they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers. They gave up their chance to be revered old men. They gave up everything for their country, for us. All we can do is remember." President Ronald W. Reagan Veterans Day Arlington National Cemetery November 11, 1985
