75 ... 76 ...

As our day draws to a close,
half a world away two more of our soldiers
have paid the ulitmate sacrifice
on a rain slick road in Afghanistan.
There are no words,
only sorrow and grief,
as we send our prayers to
their comrades,
to their families,
and to all of us,
They shall not grow old,
as we who remain grow old,
age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn,
at the going down of the sun,
and in the morning
we will remember them.
Lest We Forget.
