"We pray for peace and for the devotion and strength of soul to build it and protect it always. We pray and we resolve to keep holy the memory of those who have died for our country and to make their cause inseparably our own. We pray and we promise, so that one day Taps will sound again for the young and the brave and the good."
-Ronald Reagan, Memorial Day, May 21, 1987.
