More then a "Name on The Wall."

Name On The Wall

by Jimmy Fortune and John Rimel


I saw her from a distance
as she walked up to the wall
She laid a wreath of flowers,
then her tears began to fall

She took out pen and paper,
as to trace her memories
She looked up to the heavens,
and the words she said were these:

"Lord, my boy was special,
and he meant so much to me
And though I'd love to have him,
just one more time to see

All I have are memories,
and monuments recall
So Lord, let me know he's not
just a name upon a wall"

"He's really missed by family,
being home on Christmas day
He died for God and Country,
in a place so far away

I remember just a little boy,
playing war when he was three
But this time it's for real.
He wont be coming home to me"

"You know my boy was special,
and he meant so much to me
And though I'd love to have him here,
I know that this can't be

So thank you for the memories,
and the moments I recall
And please just tell him
he is more than a name upon a wall"

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


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."

52 Anniuversary

Bangor, PA

It will be 52 years on June 26 2017 since your death.  I am Bobby's niece Michele Fogel ( Mehas)  I am working on an application for him to be inducted into his high school alma mater, Bangor High School, 1885 Club for his achiewvements and accomplishments in his short life.  His parent Frank & Irene Butz were great people and would want his memory to be preserved.  I went to his grave the beginning of June to find that his Vietnam Flag holder was stolen, it took me an hour to find his grave site.  I went to the Department of Vetrans Affairs to get a new flag holder and ppurchased a Marine Corp. Flag holder and flag.  I will be placing them on the grave today.  He is buried in Easton Cemetery 401 N. 7th St. Easton PA 18042.  He was an American Hero and his best friend from college, wilson Gum, wrote a book about him.  It is available at Mulenberg College Library.  Bobby is also in the hall of fame there for his service and accomplishments.  I will continue to remember him by taking flowers to his grave.  I wish I would have got to meet him.
