 The Spirit of the Vietnam Veteran

The Vietnam war has long come and gone,
leaving many forever to mourn their loss.
Over the years as time passed some wounds
healed, but many still last.

Those of us who were there…
can tell you for sure…
we still remember,
we still care.

That black granite wall is our memorial stone.
Those forever inscribed will be
remembered as long as one of us
is still known.

Comrades forever, no one can
deny and nothing on this earth
can defy.

The Spirit of the Vietnam
Veteran will survive!
