Lest We Forget

Today we take a moment to pause and reflect on the men and women, past and present, that have served our country. "Lest We Forget" is a phrase that stuck with me while visiting Australia during their remembrance day. In honor of all who served. In memory of those soldiers who fell. We will never forget.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
"For the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon
