A Poem of Tribute to the Fallen

January 1st, 2006 by

They fought so that others may live
That destitute nations be free.

They sacrificed the very things
That stand for democracy.

They lost their lives heroically
That war and suffering would cease.

God bless them all and may their souls
Forever rest in peace.

Found in Stalag Luft IV during WWII

I found this on the home page of Museum of the Soldier.

It fits the men and women of today just as well as it did 60+ years ago.
