"We remem- ber those brave men who stood shoulder to shoul- der on the greens of Con- cord and fired the 'shots heard around the world' and whose sacrifice set in motion the very strug- gle for what became the United States.

Now, as is fitting, we also remember the Doughboys of World War I who went abroad and helped save Europe from annihilation.
