Together, we bow our heads in memory of all those killed in defense of our state. Today, as we stand at memorial ceremonies and as we walk through cemeteries, we remember what we have lost and we imagine what could have been.
Tonight, our eyes close as we remember every soldier who has fallen defending our country. With heavy hearts, conscious of our responsibility, we IDF soldiers mourn those who came before us, those who gave their lives to protect ours. We will never forget their sacrifice. The IDF will continue to defend our nation ceaselessly — because it is the only nation we have.
