~ Rest In Peace, Brother ~ You Will Never Be Forgotten ~

Thank you Sgt. for your service to this great nation and to our Corps...

THE WALL Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives
"War drew us from our homeland In the sunlit springtime of our youth. Those who did not come back alive remain in perpetual springtime -- forever young -- And a part of them is with us always." --- Author Unknown --- God Bless  You
