To Everyone That Made The Ultimate Sacrafice For Our Country

My thoughts will go out to the soldiers and everyone else who fought for our country and died,

ODB, I second your pictures. My upmost respect goes out to all those who fought. Rest in Peace lest we forget. Greatest respect. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.


I do not know your name, but I know you died
I do not know from where you came, but I know you died

Your uniform, branch of service, it matters not to me
Whether Volunteer or Conscript, or how it came to be
That politicians failures, or some power-mad ambition
Brought you too soon to your death, in the name of any nation

You saw, you felt, you knew full well, as friend and foe were taken
By bloody death, that your life too, was forfeit and forsaken
Yet on you went and fought and died, in your close and private hell
For Mate or Pal or Regiment and memories never to tell

It was for each other, through shot and shell, the madness you endured
Side by side, through wound and pain, and comradeship assured
No family ties, or bloodline link, could match that bond of friend
Who shared the horror and kept on going, at last until the end

We cannot know, we were not there, it's beyond our comprehension
To know the toll that battle brings, of resolute intention
To carry on, day by day, for all you loved and hoped for
To live in peace a happy life, away from bloody war

For far too many, no long life ahead, free of struggle and pain and the gun
And we must remember the price that was paid, by each and every one
Regardless of views, opinions aside, no matter how each of us sees it
They were there and I cannot forget, even though I did not live it

I do not know your name, but I know you died
I do not know from where you came, but I know you died.

[SIZE=4]There's a graveyard near the White House
Where the Unknown Soldier lies,
And the flowers there are sprinkled
With the tears from mother's eyes.

I stood there not so long ago
With roses for the brave,
And suddenly I heard a voice
Speak from out the grave:

"I am the Unknown Soldier,"
The spirit voice began,
" And I think I have the right
To ask some questions man to man.

Are my buddies taken care of?
Was their victory so sweet?
Is that big reward you offered
Selling pencils on the street?

Did they really win the freedom
They battled to achieve?
Do you still respect that Croix de Guerre
Above that empty sleeve?

Does a gold star in the window
Now mean anything at all?
I wonder how my old girl feels
When she hears a bugle call.

And that baby who sang
'Hello, Central, give me no man's land'-
Can they replace her daddy
With a military band?"

"I wonder if the profiteers
Have satisfied their greed?
I wonder if a soldier's mother
Ever is in need?

'I wonder if the kings, who planned it all
Are really satisfied?
They played their game of checkers
And eleven million died.

'I am the Unknown Soldier
And maybe I died in vain,
But if I were alive and my country called,
I'd do it all over again."[/SIZE]

My great grandad arrived in April and was dead by May. He probably lasted a good ammount of time statistically



Thank you for my freedom x x
