My brother is buried in the American Cemetery in Cambridge, UK.  As you watch the video notice the number of  brave heroes buried in each of these  cemeteries which are American property used as burial sites  now for our soldiers.   Today is no special day to honor our soldiers, just a regular day of our free life thanks to these boys who gave so much.. . . . their lives.

One thought I had was comparison of cemeteries to concentration camps in Europe.  There are many of both. Thank you seems so inadequate for all they lost. . . their youth and life. Thank you for brave soldiers willing to lay down their lives for strangers, faraway, whose freedom had  been stolen!

Thank you to all who served and continue to  serve today.. . . . . the price of our freedom !

    One of our mottoes of the 82nd Airborne is ‘Airborne – All The Way. We owe so much to men like your brother who did go all the way. The price of freedom does come high.
