Navy-Marine Corps MARS in Vietnam

Up ]



We see them among us, their steps are slower now, backs stooped with age, these old soldiers who served us well.


The flag passes.  They become young again, standing tall

as they salute the flay they so love.


Look into these old eyes, and see the souls of the young men marching off to war, protecting our country, and our dreams.


Sixty years ago, their innocence shattered, they answered

our nation's call.  Let us remember these heroes, those left on the battlefields in far away places, and those still among us.


To all of the men and women who served so heroically,

we will not forget your sacrifice for our country and our freedom.


God bless you all!
