“I have fought when others feared to serve.
I have gone where others failed to go.
I've lost friends in war and strife,
Who valued Duty more than love of life....
I've seen challenged men become even bolder, I've seen the Duty, Honor, Sacrifice of the Soldier.
Now I understand the meaning of our lives, The loss of comrades not so very long ago.
So to you who have answered duties siren call, May God bless you my son, may God bless you all.”
