At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, We remember them.
At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer, We remember them.
At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live;
for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.

"I wish to offer my humble condolences to the family of Army Lt. Col. Anthony L. Sherman For their loss and to thank them for the service the Colonel rendered to the nation. I did not know LTC Sherman but I know the kind of man he was. He was the kind of man who stood at the bridge at Concord, or manned the low wall with the 20th Mane at Gettysburg. He was a brother to those who fought at Belleau Wood, Normandy, The Chosin Reservoir, The la Drang Valley and Baghdad. Most of us will not be long remembered or missed for what we do or accomplish. Strangers will remember LTC Sherman, will remember him and his family in their prayers, and will thank God for him and men and women like him."
