We Remember …

Today Americans remember our fallen, the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, for the cause of liberty and the blessings of democracy throughout the world.

As we observe this holiday, let us take a moment to remember … and appreciate the sacrifices, past and present, made by our servicemen, women and their families. It is an honor to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, thanks to those who are willing to lay down their lives to protect our freedom and our Constitution.

 

The Sentinel’s Creed

My dedication to this sacred duty

is total and whole-hearted.


In the responsibility bestowed on me

never will I falter.


And with dignity and perseverance

my standard will remain perfection.


Through the years of diligence and praise

and the discomfort of the elements,

I will walk my tour in humble reverence

to the best of my ability.


It is he who commands the respect I protect,

his bravery that made us so proud.


Surrounded by well meaning crowds by day,

alone in the thoughtful peace of night,

this soldier will in honored glory rest

under my eternal vigilance.


– Simon 1971
