  6. The Fallen

    Remembering Those Who Made The Ultimate Sacrifice

    Fragile is a single life the brave so freely give.
    Bound for immortality, their souls will surely live.
    Death, don't be proud for what you took, they freely gave away.
    Their quest for freedom far outweighed the fear that you convey.

  10. 1914-1918 War

    Soldiers Bravely Giving Their Lives For Our Freedom

    They sacrificed their lives, entered the gates of hell,
    Onward they stumbled, while all around them fell,
    War weary, ragged, faces dirt encrusted, black.
    Impatient for the whistle, ready for attack.

  11. A Letter Home

    Truth About Fighting A War

    I left home at seventeen to fight for King and country,
    I signed up to a hero's welcome and proudly marched away,
    We departed with pride in our hearts, sure we'd be home by Christmas,
    The Hun was an easy catch, at least that's what they told us.

    A Military Funeral

    The honor guard stands sentinel and stiff-backed.
    Their tears silently fall, for their brotherhood was forged in combat.
