Since 1912 thousands of men and women have served in the Kentucky National Guard.

Hundreds of them have perished -- some on foreign battlefields, some on missions here in Kentucky to save fellow
citizens from danger and disaster and some perished training to accomplish their missions.

They each took a sacred vow to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic.

Now it’s your turn. Step forward and help us remember and honor their sacrifices.
