Most of them are citizen soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines. Men and women from the farm, the city, from the classrooms of our schools and college campuses. Men and women not dedicated to the profession of arms, not skilled in the art of war, just ordinary people like our own sons and daughters. Just soldiers inspired by the sublime cause to defend their country. It is only fitting that this living archive represents the greatest among us so that future generations of families may better understand the true meaning of sacrifice for freedom's call.
