All 122 sketches will be on display for a Memorial Day Presentation in Chicago, Illinois on May 26-31 at the James R. Thompson Center in downtown Chicago. After the ceremony the sketches will be given to the immediate families of the Illinois soldiers. I would invite any friends or family members to come and honor these men and women from Illinois who have given their lives to our country. For more information please contact OperationHomeFront.org at 866-417-8889 which is an organization headed by the Lt. Governor Pat Quinn of Illinois who is in charge of the Memorial Day Presentation.

"My name is Cameron Schilling. I am a college student from central Illinois. I am the first generation of my family not to serve his country. I am extremely grateful for the sacrifice you and your loved one has given for the United States. I am disappointed by the way the news media has covered this war and the deaths of our youth. The media has stopped listing the names of the soldiers killed in Iraq and people only talk about the soldiers when we reach a specific milestone in deaths. If you just started watching the news today you would not even know there is a war going on. Partisan politics have replaced coverage of our young generation who have traveled to a foreign land in the name of the United States. Whether you believe the war in Iraq is wrong, right, justified or not everyone should pay even just a little more attention to what these young men and women are sacrificing. This is what I would like to do. I want to do my part in honoring these soldiers and their memories. Along with being a college student I am also a budding artist. I draw pencil portraits of local people in my community. I want to offer a pencil portrait sketch to the immediate family of every Illinois soldier killed in Iraq. Please contact me at cameronschilling84@hotmail.com."

"I got to know you through your family, friends, co-workers, and fellow soldiers. Its been a year now and I am walking the same ground as you did, to include the place you left us. Your sacrifice is never more clear to me now. I was cheated to never hear your laugh, shake your hand, or see the spark that everyone said you carried with you. The honor of meeting your family and friends is something I will carry and cherish for all of my days. Thank You for the lessons you taught me. I will do my best to honor your sacrifice everyday of my life."
CPT Arthur Fager of Baghdad Iraq/Moline Illinois

May we all learn from your example.

Never ever will Landis be forgotten by the members of the Port Byron Fire Department.

"Landis (Sergeant "G"),

You were a brave soldier with a constant desire to do the best you could do, each and every time, in every situation, good and bad. Our country should, and is, rightly proud of your service. I hope I was able to communicate that to you in all the months we spent together in Iraq. I know your quick thinking "saved the day" for our team on more than one occasion (like the day you quickly prevented my HUMMWV from becoming a pile of smoking ash in downtown An Nasiryah). I am, and always will be, proud to have served with you. I think back to the times we were able to mentally "escape Iraq" for a short while, and tell stories and most importantly -- laugh, even in Baghdad. If there were more people like you in this world, perhaps wars would become a thing of the past, confined only to history books. May God go with you and may He always comfort your family and friends. Thank you for everything, I will miss you "G"."
Major John G. Voorhees, Jr. of The Pentagon, Washington, DC

"To the family of Landis Garrison:
My husband and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to your family in the loss of your son. He truly was a hero to sacrifice so much for all Americans and for that we say thank you. We don't know you but he sounded like just an all-American kid. We have a farm and have the semis to haul the grain. Your set up sounded so much like our family operation. We pray for peace in your heart. Please know that our family expresses our gratitude to you and yours for the patriotism and commitment that your son exhibited. Thank you very much. With our sincerest sympathy."
Gary & LeAnn Ross of German Valley, IL

"In the words of Abraham Lincoln to Mrs Bixby who had lost 5 sons in the Civil War:

"I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.

I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.""

"I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. God bless you and keep you in this time of sorrow!"
Lily of Spokane, WA

"O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife, who more than self their country loved and mercy more than life."

The General who spoke at Landis' funeral was right: Landis was a hero three times over, and it's clear he loved mercy. We can trust that he is safely home, and that your grief will be relieved by a reunion someday. We will be praying for you and we send you Isaiah 61:3.

Christ will...
"comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion-
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor."
Christopher and Carol Clukey of Freeport, IL

"Landis~

Vern Croffoot of Freeport, Illinois

"After watching the breaking news of Spec. Tillman and all of the follow up news about Spec. Tillman being killed in action and his sacrifice it forced me give even more thought to something I have been thinking about for some time now. Twelve members of my family are veterans and two have been killed in action so I thought I always understood the sacrifice our military men and women make and why they do it. That was until a couple of weeks ago when my nine year old son and I watched "Saving Private Ryan" and in the ending scene when the dying Capt. Miller tasked the young private Ryan with the responsibility to "earn this". "This" being the sacrifice his brothers in arms have made.

My son asked me how could private Ryan earn "this"? My first answer to him was the typical and most apparent things I think most people think of. I told him that Pvt. Ryan could make the most of his life, maybe staying in the military, getting a good education, starting his own business and be a good employer, being active in his community and in politics, raising his children to be productive adults and to love and respect this country and etc, etc. But after thinking about it for awhile and wondering how we "earn this" and how do we repay the sacrifice freely laid down for us a different perspective dawned on me and something very different became apparent to me.

I believe that there is no way we can repay their sacrifices, because those sacrifices weren't made for us. They were made for the ideas and principles that define this country. What makes America unique is the fact that we are not defined by our ancestral heritage or skin color or birth or religion, but by our devotion to the ideals of Freedom, Choice and Equality under law, to which any person can subscribe. And any person who subscribes to those ideals in accordance with our law can become as much and as fully an American as anyone born here. "German" can mean a Nordic blond haired-blue eyed native speaker of the German language and is person who is a citizen of Germany. "American" just means a citizen of this nation. No eye color, no body type, no ethnicity implied. Our strength is not in our diversity. Our diversity is proof of the strength of our ideas and principles. Of strength enough to call people from European castles and third world jungles Americans, and to make each of them free, allow them an opportunity to prosper, chose and be an equal under the law.

We can not repay the debt to the men and women in our armed forces like Sgt. Garrison and Spc. Tillman because it wasn't incurred for us. We can't show ourselves worthy of the blood these men and women have shed because it wasn’t shed for us. We can however, honor that sacrifice by devoting our lives to the ideals and principles for which they laid down their own. So, how do we "earn it"? If you encounter a member of our United States Armed Services or their family, Thank them! Thank them sincerely and profusely. Do them a small kindness if you are able, small care packages with a handwritten letter to a deployed unit, help their family members that are here at home and keep them in your prayers if you are religious and/or your thoughts. But most importantly, take the time to think about and understand the idea’s and principles that are America and the reason these men and women are making the sacrifices then try to live up to them.

I don't know Spc. Tillman but from what I have learned of him he was a very intelligent man that thought thru everything in his life and he understood and believed in these ideas and principles and he did live up to them like all the other men and women in our armed forces. God bless Sgt. Garrison, Spc. Tillman and the other men and women in our armed forces and their families."
Charlie Nichols of Swink, Colorado
