HAPPY BAND OF BROTHERS DAY

We were those who swore upon bible and flag.
Dug the deep bunkers and filled each sandbag.
Others would say we did not have too many brains.
Cause we were commandos and jumped out of planes.

But we are a true and real band of brothers.
And yes, it is true we are not like the others.
We wore jump wings and our maroon berets.
We never backed down from the fracas or Frey.

I meet my brothers now out on the Civvie Street.
It is with a big bear hug and a handshake we greet.
Those who don’t know us don’t know what to say.
When they hear us all talk about Band of Brothers day!
