Remembering Our Fallen

I’ve never tripped a booby trap,
or stood upon a mine,
but I have seen what happens,
when you’re out there on the line.

Some men die real hard,
others not so bad,
but it really doesn’t matter,
when you’ve given all you had.

I was never wounded,
so I never felt the shock,
or felt the pain rip through my body,
while calling out for Doc.

Sometimes the pain is awful,
it can make you want to dry,
that pain can get so bad at times,
you might pray to God to die.

I know I was lucky,
that it never happened to me,
and that someone else’s blood,
was shed to keep me free.
