 Poems by The Old Cowboy

The 377th SPS

We are the 377th Security Police
Born into war and battle proven
Willing to fight never to cease
Brave young and courageous  Airman

Standing our post and always on guard
Never forgetting who or what we are
Repelling all  the enemies charges
In that land of Vietnam so far

Our home became Tan Son Nhut
Not a place  were we wanted to be
Hot and rainy a horrible climate
With filthy places like 100P alley

When the time for battle reared its head
We turned to steel hard as granite
After Tet of 68 we counted our dead
Bloody troops who ran the gauntlet

After all these years that have passed
We come together once more
Sharing all the memories we have amassed
Honoring those here and the ones gone before
