never forget to remember
happened to Pearl in December.
will we ever forget
brave men who sleep there yet!
in B-17's, like the Memphis Belle
the skies of Germany, raising hell!
died from January thru December,
they, we'll never forget to remember!
Mighty 8th also flew the 24.
these 'Flying Coffins', there was blood to spill;
shall never forget to remember planes,
to the beautiful "Diamond Lil!"
Korea raised her ugly head
thousands of Americans dead.
freedom, we'll never surrender,
we'll never forget to remember!
Vietnam was a crazy war.
thousands to settle the score.
those who marched through gates of splendor,
never forget to remember!
let me say before I go;
was a battle called Cold Harbor,
3 June, 1864, when 9,500 Americans
killed, wounded, or missing within the
of an hour, and it burns like an ember.
must never forget to remember!
