A simple "Thank you" can not begin to show how I feel for those who have lost their lives for our country. God bless their families & give them strengh and know that those loved ones will never be forgotten.

To the serviceman of the United States i have laughed beside, fought beside and cried beside. To those that have helped me in my hour of need and to those that i have been fortunate enough to help.

To the families and loved ones of those that have been lost, to those that are left behind.

I Thank You.

A video of "Taps" made by the U.S. Navy Band at Arlington National
Cemetery, Published on May 25, 2012.


Twenty-four notes. It's a simple melody, 150 years old, that can
express our gratitude when words fail. Taps honors the men and
women who have laid down their lives and paid the ultimate
sacrifice for the cause of freedom. Fair winds and following seas,
shipmates.
