MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE


"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." General George S. Patton, Jr. (1885-1945)


Whenever I See A Soldier Boy...

Whenever I see a soldier boy
No matter where it be
I give him salutation
for he means so much to me

He's not the boy we used to know
In store, at desk or plow
He's a defender of our faith
He's in the service now

He keeps Old Glory flying
on land and air and sea
He lives to make our homes secure
He dies to keep us free.

The brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for our great country will never be forgotten.
