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
