- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Today, honor the fallen heroes who have sacrificed their lives for their countries and the freedom of all men.

Scripture

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.John 15:13

Quote

Situated among the carefully mowed grass, acre upon acre, were markers identifying men, mostly young, who in battle gave their lives. As I let my eyes pass name by name along the many colonnades of honor, tears came easily and without embarrassment. As my eyes filled with tears, my heart swelled with pride. I contemplated the high price of liberty and the costly sacrifice many had been called upon to bear.Thomas S. Monson
