    A day of reflection and remembrance for those who have answered the call in the past , and to those who stand in that breach today .
    Fighters in every place and clime , in every cause but our own .

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."
