For The World.
Lives To This End
World War II
No greater love can be shown than
when men and women so live and die
that their friends may be free . . . and
the flames that burn in their memories
call us to nobler deeds to help
make gentle the life of the world.

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
