Freedom Is Not Free
I watched the flag pass by one day, it fluttered in the breeze
A young man in uniform saluted it, and then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform ? so young, so tall, so proud
With hair cut square and eyes alert, he?d stand out in the crowd.
I thought how many men like him had fallen through the years?
How many died on foreign soil? How many mother?s tears?
How many pilots? planes shot down? How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers? graves?
No, Freedom is not free.
I heard the sound of taps one night, when everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play and felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times that taps had meant ?Amen?
When a flag had draped a coffin of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children, of mothers and the wives
Of fathers, sons and husbands, with interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard at the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves a Arlington
No, Freedom is not free.

Great site. Served from Mar, '67 to Mar, '68 with the 716th MP Bn, Charlie Co. in Saigon. Those of you that I was honored to serve with during TET will never be forgotten. God bless the many that gave their lives that terrible night at the Embassy, BOQ #3, and the Race Track. I was Car #61 when it all started, feels like yesterday. Looking for anyone that I served with, especially Jerry Howe, Tom "The Rock" Winters, Sgt. Streets, Sgt. Jerry Bowen, Bill Rober, Mike "Chase" Grigsby, and many others. I would love to hear from you.
