SOLDIERS OF VIETNAM
Awarded: June 3, 2005They stand together, all of them,
both the short and tall,
Battle hardened combat men,
Who answered their nation’s call.
With them stand supporting troops,
Men who gave their all,
Not standing there as separate groups,
But united one and all.
The bugle plays for all of them,
As they remember those who died,
Valiant loyal well-trained men
Who did their best and tried.
To do what they would do again,
With undaunted humble pride.
