Dedicated to all who have been killed in action.

Proud Friend Of A Fallen Soldier:

I still remember the day

You went away,

I'll never forget

The fear I felt

As I watched you board that plane.

I didn't know if you'd come home

Or how you would be.

I could only pray that God

Would keep you safe

And bring you home to us.

I watched the news every night,

Fearing for your life,

Awaited your every letter

Replying the instant

I got my hands on some paper,

Shivered every time

The telephone rang.

Even hung a sign above my door

That read

"Soldier Please Come Home"

But you never did.

So I cried and hung another sign

That said

"Proud friend of a fallen soldier"

Which to this day

Is very true.
