Would love to have the name of the quoted person on the image itself so when it's shared the quote doesn't get confused.

Hey Donkey Rock
I see your point. Thanks.

Mr. Charles put it better & with more style than I ever could:
Oh beautiful for patriots proved in liberating strife
Who more than self have country loved & mercy more than life
Good audio. Not the best version, but IMO the best compromise. Maybe give some others a listen while you're there.
I couldn't find a better audio track (with a group chorus at the end) that was memorial, apolitical, or didn't use images that might be considered by some as aggressive & militaristic. Nothing against the military--this is a just a little blip as solemn as a blog comment permits in remembrance of the fallen.
Nice one, John.

It was celebrated in the right spirit and with family: My brother, sister, our spouses, and our mother. Out of the seven, four are vets.
I hope you day was good as well.
