Today I rose early to visit The Wall and spend time thinking of you as I remember your story.... In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. -Mark Twain. It is my honor to know you and to know your, as well as your, families sacrifices…It has been my privilage over the past fourty plus years to tell your story when ever I had an audience. It was an honor to serve with you. Breathe, trumpets, breathe - Slow notes of saddest wailing - Sadly responsive peal, ye muffled drums - Comrades, with downcast eyes - And banners trailing Attend him home, - The youthful warrior comes… - With proud fond tears, - By tinge of shame untainted, - Bear him, and lay him - Gently in his grave: - Above the hero write, — The young, half sainted, — His country asked his life, - His life he gave! - By George Lunt - Honor and Country, Don "Big Mac" McKinley, Nanaimo, British Columbia Canada, email@example.com.
