* Our Brave Dead *

DEAD, DEAD, DEAD… our defenders dead
Dread the battle, yet never fled
Thru danger tread, in courage led
Request no stead…in death they bled

Freedom sought in Revolution
Found liberty…a great Nation
Fought British rule, in retribution
Died in glory…absolution

In Civil War, our country’s battle
North and South with saber rattle
Brother to brother, blood they bled
At Gettysburg remembered dead  

“In Flanders Field where poppies blow”
Toe to toe, engaging their foe
Now row to row, their crosses mark
A hallow ground, a landscape stark

Across the blue fought WWII
In combat died when sorties flew
In sands of Iwo, shed their blood
On Normandy beach died in mud

The guerrilla war…Vietnam
Jungle combat, with Napalm bomb
An angry war, so many died
No one denied, they fought with pride  

We lay to rest...We put to bed
We mourn, we pray the comrade dead
Where they rest, may it be in peace
Our brave men, now decease
