Another flag draped coffin arrived home from war today,
Arlington Cemetery is where this solider will lay!
They fought for God and Country
proudly answering Duties Call,
Along side their Comrades sadly,
they gave their very All!
War time now for them is over,
and the family now face the Test.
From a Grateful Nation Thank you,
for giving us your Best!
A folded flag, a gun salute,
the haunting sounds of taps,
soft whispers of Condolences
as the flag lay in your laps!
Mother's mourn their children,
a new Baby who never knew,
How brave they fought for freedom,
for Our Red, White and Blue
Today we honor those hero's,
And let us never forget to proudly Sing,
Those three words they fought for,
"Let Freedom Ring"!
