Stories about Thomas Lee Carter

Thank you Captain 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."

    God Bless  You
