******* UNITED STATES ARMY *******

Tread lightly, 'tis a soldiers grave,
A lonely, mossy mound;
And yet to hearts like mine and thine
It should be holy ground~

Speak softly, let no careless laugh,
No idle, thoughtless jest,
Escape your lips where sweetly sleeps
The hero in his rest~

For him no reveille will beat
When morning beams shall come;
For him, at night, no tattoo rolls
Its thunders from the drum~

Tread lightly! for a man bequeathed,
Ere laid beneath this sod,
His ashes to his native land,
His gallant soul to God~


James was honored with the Purple Heart for injuries he received in the Korean Conflict ~
He who wears the military order of the purple heart has given of his blood in the defense of his homeland and shall forever be revered by his fellow countrymen ~
