Fifteen years ago today, September 20th, 2004, Marine Corps Sgt. Foster Harrington was killed in battle while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Sgt. Harrington served with our son, First Sergeant Noah Davis, and was a dear friend. I know you will join me in remembering and honoring Foster, and all who gave the last full measure of devotion in defending the liberty and sanctity of our nation, and seeking to bring the gift of freedom to others.
On the webpage below, you will find the link for a video we produced in 2011 to honor Sgt. Harrington and all who have died for our freedom through the centuries. The video is the second one listed, and is entitled "To the Fallen."
To the Fallen
Oh fallen ones, who died to give
this liberty in which we
so freely live.
We'll not forget your sacrifice,
we'll not forget
the bloody price.
We'll think of land and sea and air,
we'll think of
unknown places where
You gave your life that this dear land
might ever live,
might ever stand.
To the fallen:
