Brig. Gen. James S. Moore, Commander of the 593rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command, gives the keynote speech Monday during the 11th Annual Day of Remembrance Memorial Service, presented by the Tacoma Historical Society and Edward B. Rhodes/Parkland Post 2 American Legion at War Memorial Park in Tacoma, Wash.
"We remember the 1.2 million American service members who gave their all as the price of freedom since the Revolutionary War," Moore said. "The cost of war is ultimately not counted in terms of lives lost, but in the hearts of millions more: wives, husbands, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers who bear the burden of going on without them.
