My little sisters video and My dad in the green shirt. A Vietnam Veteran honoring those who are gone.
” The muffled drum’s sad roll has beat
The soldier’s last tattoo;
No more on life’s parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On Fame’s eternal camping-ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And Glory guards, with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.”
– Theodore O’Hara, “The Bivouac of the dead”
Welcome home, Soldier, Welcome home. This day is yours. Many might celebrate with cookouts, but shall we never forget the REAL reason for this day.
Thank you for your service. That my children will grow up free. Thank you for your service, that my children will know peace. Thank you for your service. Your ultimate sacrifice for people you would never meet.
Thank you for my freedom and all that I hold dear. That I can speak freely the thoughts rolling through my head. Thank you for my freedom, there is nothing my children need to fear.
Welcome home, Soldier. Whether it’s to a loving embrace or beneath a mourning flag, welcome home Soldier, your legacy carries on.
Welcome home, Soldier from a place called Vietnam. Welcome home several decades to late. Welcome home, Dad, and millions just like you. Welcome home, Soldier and many thanks to you.
Thank you for serving, some not knowing that you were never coming home. Thank you Dad, for standing so tall and brave, just like you are standing today remembering your fallen men.
