I really cannot write anything more poignant that what is presented in image below of the crew of the Carl Vinson arriving in Pearl Harbor back in 1999 as they were about to salute the crew of the Arizona.

God Bless the soldiers of our military.  Whether you agree with their politics or not, pray for the men who direct them.
