SALUTE

Salute… salute
all the Veterans who will stand
on that day at the Wall…
warding off the protesters hand

Brotherhood is forever young
and grows stronger with age
History has proof of that
upon every yellowed page

Their aim will not bow
No shoulders will stoop now
All will stand tall
in honor of those upon the Wall
