American service members, and other U.S. government personnel, deploy to some of the world’s most challenging conflict zones. We express deep appreciation for the work they do every day and particularly recognize those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  Their service and commitment inspires us to redouble our efforts to prevent and mitigate violent conflict around the world.
