Forever grateful to them and their family's for the ultimate sacrifice.
These young men gave everything; there is no greater love than he who would lay down his life for his fellow man.
Cut off in the prime of life- what could have been is now a hole in the heart of their loved ones, and a poignant hope for the faithful.
God rest their souls, God Bless their friends and families in these coming tough holidays.
Thank you for the heartfelt eulogy. We must remember the sacrifices of so many families, and vow to do all we can to keep our country free so their sacrifice will not be in vain.
My dad was stationed at Schofield in WWll; my son worked there as a UXO tech.
Your island is a beauriful place.
Salute to these brave men.
Thank you for the post so we too can honor them.
