Walhalla in Oconee County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Combat Infantrymen Monument
We were boys and we were young
We became men on that hill we overrun
Some of us lived, many of us died
For a moment with us abide
And join in prayer with me
To honor those of the combat infantry.
The Combat Infantrymen's
Freedom has a price
The protected will never know.
