Everyone has heroes inside of their hearts. 영웅은 우리 모두 안에 있다.

People can give some, 모두가 조금씩 내줄 순 있다
but some gave all. 하지만 모든 걸 내준 사람들도 있었다.
Remember their dedications forever. 그들의 헌신을 기억하자.

Rememberance Day (Veteran’s Day), November 11.

<My friend, I came for you>
The storyline is based on true story, dramatized by the storywriter.
