Inscription.
We toast our hearty comrades
who have fallen from the sky.....

And were gently caught on God's own hand
to be with him on high.....

To dwell among the soaring clouds
they knew so well before
From Dawn Patrol to Victory Roll at Heaven's very door.

And as we fly among them there
We're sure to hear their plea.....

Take care my friend.....
Watch your "six".....
and do one more roll - for me.....

Written on behalf of all "POW's" in remembrance of those who did not return home and those who have been declared "MIA".

Written by Lt. Gerald Coffee, USN
