    If a picture can say a thousand words, a few pics can say a million. A very moving tribute. I’m an Army Civilian who spent some time in Iraq and have been very fortunate not to have any of my colleagues-in-uniform be among the fallen. Those in these pictures obviously haven’t been so lucky. Every American should feel the pain of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice every day.

  4. Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Tuesdays, every day is one of remembering the brothers we’ve lost along the way. Every morning my old tags go on and I try to give my all to my borrowed time in their memory.

    Thanks to OFB for taking the time to post a simple reminder to the many who frequent of what makes it all possible.

    I pass Arlington National Cemetery every day going to work and it is a daily reminder of those who have paid the ultimate price.
