TAKING CARE OF OUR BROTHERS WITH WHOM WE SERVED

Binh-Thuy Air Base Patch


As very young men we chose to serve our nation
We were taught many lessons as we were trained
We learned of traditions, honor and to respect

We learned the lessons that would change us all
From civilians of many backgrounds and customs
We became part of the team defending our nation

We also learned to trust and rely on each other
To care for each other and to help our brothers
And to never leave anyone behind in any battles

We were defending our nation and our way of life
We not only served the cause but for each other
You knew that you could count on your brothers

Now years after our own war had ended for us
Many of us still have lingering issues we face
Whether it's nightmares & PTSD or from chemicals

We're now 54 plus years past those days and nights
Those lessons we learned are still part of us all
We still care deeply and "WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN"
