A MEMORIAL

Sometimes war is a death sentence

For soldiers defending our country

With the honor and glory given them

By our country should they fall

These men and women

Regard not heavily

This likelihood

Many put their faith in God

To protect them

Soldiers groomed by training

Impressed by duty

Go to war to protect

Our way of life

Freedom

We bow our heads

Before God today

To honor our fallen

Soldiers who peered into the future

Saw our country preserved

The rights of our citizens intact

We say a solemn “Thank you”

To these American heroes

May they rest in the Lord
