In Appreciation From The People Of
Rockland County
To Those Who Defended Freedom
In Foreign Lands Dirung
The Viet Nam Era

Too young to die so much you'll miss
If you were here we'd tell you this
Because of you, our son will see
A world of peace, all people free.
You paid the greatest price you could
We cannot thank you like we should
But when we see our flag go by,
We'll think of you and how you died.
1964 - 1973
