Sharon Lane, the All-American Girl

She came to Vietnam not to fight or warrior to be
but to serve a higher purpose across the sea.

She knew the hurt, the pain, the dying
Sharon came to heal them and to stop the crying.

With purpose in her steps she made her rounds
To give hope to the soldier and to turn his frown upside down.

Whether it be the boy from back home or the Viet Cong
She did her job with care--she knew this is where she belonged.

She was cut down in the middle of the night
A piece of flying metal took her life.

She died alone
So far from home.

Her life was taken from us
Sharon's presence we still miss.

Let us never forget that freedom has a cost
Sharon became our hero-our hearts are empty by her loss.

Sharon was the All-American girl
She was perfection in an imperfect world.

Remembered by
"Doc" Kerry Pardue,
a field medic in Vietnam
