All Warriors are Green.
It gives them
some advantage,
especially in the jungle,
of not being seen
as to religion, race
or station in life
just as a team
of brothers;
a fighting machine.

Stir together
these Sailors, Airmen,
Soldiers, Marines
who fight for you
All Warriors of the
Red, White and Blue
When it settles
… paint Purple;
The color of Majesty,
of Royalty
of Mourning,
the color of the
Purple Heart Medal.
