The passing of the Funeral Procession of SSgt.   K. Rodgers,
Howe Indiana  (2008)
O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
To our men, women and animals of the US Military

Who more than self their country loved,
Who gave their time and service to this great Nation

And mercy more than life!
And who understood the cost of war not just to themselves, but to their enemies.

America! America! May God thy gold refine
In the dross of everyday life, politics and all that is the Republic
Till all success be nobleness,
Your was mission assured, your place in history is secured

And ev'ry gain divine!

We are forever blessed by your sacrifice.

On this Memorial Day, we remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to this Great Nation.  From the Revolutionary War, to the Caves and Sandpits of the Middle East - well done Soldiers...well done.
