“The dead soldier’s silence sings our national anthem”

"The dead soldier’s silence sings our national anthem” is a popular Memorial Day quotation that has been printed on many GIFs. The saying has been credited to Rev. Aaron Kilbourn (First Baptist Church of Parker, SD) since May 2007. Rev. Kilbourn said the words at the Arlington National Cemetery.


28 May 2007, The News Press (Fort Myers, FL), “Today, remember the vast war dead,” pg. ?:
“The dead soldier’s silence sings our national anthem.”
-- The Rev. Aron Kilbourn
