For those who gave the last full measure of devotion so we can live free, you are always in our hearts. Especially today.
While there are no official lyrics for Taps, the following unofficial verse (author unknown) is often used:
Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh -- Falls the night.
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
Then good night, peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn shineth bright;
God is near, do not fear -- Friend, good night.

A beautiful tribute.
We will never forget either. Mom's dad was killed in Vietnam, when she was 17. We must never forget the freedom we have because of all those who have served.
