    Thank you SSgt. for your service to this great nation.

      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."
