> It was covered with names and small American flags were

> The seven-year-old had been staring at the plaque for some
> time, so the preacher walked up, stood beside the little boy,
> and said quietly, "Good morning, Billy."
> "Good morning, Preacher," replied the young man, still
> focused on the plaque. "Preacher, what is this?"
> "Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and
> women who died while in the service."
> Soberly, they stood together, staring at the plaque.
> Little Billy's voice was barely audible when he asked:
> "Which service, the 9:45 or the 11:00?"
