BROWN: Today, more than 2,900 American servicemen and women have given their lives in defense of this nation's freedom and security. We owe them and their families a tremendous amount of debt of gratitude, and I urge you to remember them and reflect on their sacrifices, as well. We will win this war, and we will protect this nation, and our children.
