    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of these American Heroes, a grateful nation mourns your loss. Find peace, strength and comfort in the knowledge that your fallen hero gave unselfishly of themselves in order to keep us all free and safe. Your brave warrior will never be forgotten. Thank you for sharing your loved one with all of us, their sense of duty and honor will live on for generations to come. God Bless you our Heroes for a job well done.Stand down and rest in peace.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s parents.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s friends.
    They were not just soldiers: they were our soldiers.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s children.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s love.
    My wife and I offer our sincere thanks and prayers for these true American heroes. Their service and sacrifices will not be forgotten. Their valor did not go unnoticed. We are forever grateful for their service to our country. May they never be forgotten, and may God grant them eternal peace.
    We fought a revolution. We won the revolution. We wrote the Constitution.
    The constitution doesn’t grant power, it keeps the government off our backs.
