"The last note of taps drifts slowly across the mist covered hills. I feel an intense sadness and emptyness. I slowly lower my head as the tears flow down my cheeks. For a minute I allow the feelings to wash over me. The fallen are worthy.
I lift my head and look at the flag draped coffin. I square my shoulders and become more determined to honor the memory of those who sacrificied all, that all may live free.
The fallen are worthy."
