SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

Our Soldiers don't ask for much in return for their selfless service. They ask that they be allowed to accomplish their mission. They ask that the American people be there with them as they answer the call. And they ask that they never be forgotten -- both those that return and those who do not.

General Richard A. Cody
Vice Chief of Staff, United States Army

It is a day to remember the first responders and all those who came to the rescue, and a day to remember all those who wear the cloth of our nation around the world, who protect and defend the freedoms and liberties that we so cherish.

Gordon England
Acting Deputy Secretary of Defense and Secretary of the Navy
