WATCH: Honoring those who died for our country

Posted at 6:24 PM, May 30, 2016
"It's a chance to pay my respects to the fella that died in the process," said World War II veteran Albert DeSilva. 
 
We don't know them all.
 
But on Memorial Day, we honor them all.
 
Some honored the fallen with stuff salutes. Others honored them with clasped hands, heads bowed. 
 
And some honored them with knees on granite to lay roses. 
 
"It's been a while since I've been out here myself and I miss them," said Colleen Delatorre. 
 
Colleen and her brother Michael know their parents are in good hands.
 
"Air Force and he was a Staff Sergeant," she said. 
 
It doesn't make today any easier.
 
"I think they'd be very happy that we're here and if they were standing here now, I would give them a hug," she said. 
 
Today we remembered those who served and sacrificed with a bugle's familiar riff but also a whisper that looked like 'I miss you.'
 
We don't know them all. 
 
"I feel honored to be honoring them, remembering them," said DeSilva. 
 
But we certainly owe them all.
