  • Thank you John Murray Eaglesome for your service to our country, and for your ultimate sacrifice.

    Poem for the Fallen.
    By Laurence Binyon.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.

    LEST WE FORGET.
