President Barack Obama:

“Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay.  But we can honor their sacrifice, and we must.  We must honor it in our own lives by holding their memories close to our hearts, and heeding the example they set.  And we must honor it as a nation by keeping our sacred trust with all who wear America’s uniform, and the families who love them; by never giving up the search for those who’ve gone missing under our country’s flag or are held as prisoners of war; by serving our patriots as well as they serve us — from the moment they enter the military, to the moment they leave it, to the moment they are laid to rest.”
