For the ninth consecutive year we are gathered here to honor those who made the Supreme Sacrifice. We are not marching alone today: our ranks are swollen with almost visible presence of our departed comrades.

Our tears, or words cannot bring back our fallen heroes. They would not want our pity, but for their sake, let us not forget the loved ones left behind.

As we stand here in solemn tribute to our faithfully departed, let us pray for peace, that their campaigns fought were not in vain.

After these moments of bowed reverence, let us hold our heads high with pride, that through their faultless courage on the field of battle, in the air, and on the sea, we are here today enjoying our cherish4;4…. possessions – Justice, Freedom and Democracy.

Be it resolved, before this monument of St. Aloysius for our honored dead that we shall strive forever to dedicate ourselves to our God and to our Nation
