Did they beat the drums slowly
Did they play the fife lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
Did the band play the last post and chorus
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest
Green Fields of France, Eric Bogle
Being the son of a soldier, Memorial Day is always difficult for me. When I think of all the young men and women who have died in the service, I can only wonder if the day comes that we won’t have to bury our young in such numbers.
I love you, Dad.
