Ode to Sergeant Terance Jensen

In 1965, out of the dark jungle night
they came, fifteen Sapper strong,
across the live runway, with AK-47's aflame.

Some gave…and some gave all!
Some will live forever on that
Black Granite Wall.

Duty bound was he, outnumbered,
outgunned …he fought to his last
round, in defense of his duty
bound.

He took a brave stand and fiercely fought
in that jungle land. He answered that last
duty call and battled them all.

Sergeant was his title, Terance
was his name, Air Policeman was
his fame.

On that dark jungle night, Terance stood tall
and  gave his all. He shall be remembered
forever on that Hallowed Granite Wall.

May his Spirit soar with Eagles.
