FALLEN  BRAVES
OPERATION  IRAQI  FREEDOM
Every name, every life, is a loss to our military, to our nation, and to the loved ones who grieve.  There is no homecoming for
these families.  Yet we pray, in God's time, their reunion will come.Those we lost were last seen on duty.  Their final act on this
earth was to fight a great evil, and bring liberty to others...

All of you -- all in this generation of our military -- have taken up the highest calling of history. You are defending your
country, and protecting the innocent from harm. And wherever you go, you carry a message of hope, a message that is
ancient, and evernew. In the words of the prophet Isaiah:  "To the captives, Come out, and to those in darkness, Be free.''
Thank you for serving our country and our cause.  God bless you all, and may God continue to bless America.
                       George W. Bush
  Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces
