"They will live in our hearts forever"
Hills of Snow
Fifty thousand were laid low
since we fought for hills of snow
did our best throughout our tour
proud to serve forgotten war.
Stuck it out near old Pusan
broke our backs and took Inchon
screaming jets and mortars crash
to the front and back to mash.
Pushed to Yalu River Bridge
scaled the heights at Heartbreak Ridge
for three years we had our fill
till the end at Porkchop Hill.
From poem by Richard M. Kurzrok
