Those of us who came home will stand attention on this day, Memorial Day, and salute all veterans, living or dead who answered when their country called. Those who had no stomach for the fight, stayed home. We didn’t care to die in their company when they valued their life rather than fight and die with us. We who survived will yearly on this day strip our sleeves and show our scars, and say "These wounds I had in the service of my country."
Old men may forget; but on this day, we band of brothers and sisters will remember what feats we did. Our fallen comrades will be freshly remembered. With these stories, we’ll teach our sons and daughters. From this day to the ending of the world, as long as we live, we will remember.
We few, we happy few, we are a band of brothers and sisters; for anyone that served with me
is my brother or sister.
