I found this on a message board, for families of Fallen Heroes, OIF
~~~~~~~~

The soldiers do not speak. Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses: who has not heard them? They have a silence that speaks for them at night and when the clock counts. They say: We are young. We have died. Remember us. They say: We have done what we could but until it is finished it is not done. They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished no one can know what our lives gave. They say: Our deaths are not ours: they are yours they will mean what you make them. They say: Weather our lives and our deaths are for peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say: it is you who must say this. They say: We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning. We were young. they say. We have died. Remember us:"
William Taylor of Bonita Springs, Fl.

We went to a Pow-Wow at the weekend where they paid a wonderful tribute to all our great Vets.

Go to this blog and thank this young man and encourage his wife:

CPT Rob Yllescas

He was seriously injured by an IED on Oct. 28 in Afghanistan.

President Bush awarded him the Purple Heart yesterday (11/10); however, he was not awake to know it.
