Throughout history we have answered
our country's call to arms,
for freedom, for justice,
for self-determination of an ally,
we have served, and sometimes paid
in grim coin the price exacted,
Through no fault of ours,
somehow we are left
on foreign shores,
Some of us lie in unmarked graves,
some of us remain behind prison bars
and some of us serve as slave laborers;
Yet all of us yearn to be
returned to the land of our birth,
Whether to live out the remainder . . . — Map (db m15120) WM|
