As a people shall and must remember its preachers and teachers, its scientists and entertainers, its athletes and cultural creators, so too it must remember its soldiers. For the soldier is the defender of all the others and without him none of the rest is possible. The character of a nation and/or a people is to be properly assessed by the tribute and respect it gives to its soldiers. One cannot expect the soldiers of one’s people to be truly honored by those whom he had to fight which is why those for whom he fought must be most wise to honor him. No such soldier should be denied a respectable burial and a marker for the ages to remind future generations of their sacrifice.
