Adm. Mike Mullen quote
Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, citing the importance of remembering the cost of freedom in a Memorial Day message to the armed forces

Let no ravages of time testify to the present or the coming generations that we, as a people, have forgotten the cost of a free and undivided republic. Upon the graves of our war dead rests not only the memories and the pride of valor past, but the hope and the vision of a better, more peaceful future.
