We honor their memories and brave accomplishments on behalf of the security of our nation with dignity and gratitude. We extend condolences to their families from the entire American Orthodox Jewish Community.
We are thankful for the return of their bodies from captivity to the hallowed soil of our homeland.
We fervently pray for the release from imprisonment of Staff Sergeant Gilad Shalit, alive and well.
We turn our eyes Heavenward and beseech the Almighty to grant a true and lasting peace to Israel and to all mankind.
