CARRY FORWARD

THIS CENTURY HAS COME AND GONE
        REMEMBRANCE MUST GO ON
TWO WORLD WARS FOUGHT AND WON
        WITH HISTORY TELLING THE
                     STORY NOW ON
         FOR WE ARE ALL BUT GONE

        STRAIGHT AND TALL WE STOOD
FLIGHT TO THE END WAS UNDERSTOOD
         SACRIFICE ALL FOR THE GOOD
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY WE WITHSTOOD

         SOLDIERS WE WERE CALLED THEN
VETERANS WE ARE CALLED SINCE THEN
         REMEMBERED NOW AND AGAIN
         FOR NOW WE ARE BUT A FEW MEN

PRIDE AND HONOR WE HAVE CARRIED
                     THROUGH THE YEARS
FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COUNTRYMEN
                     HAVE SHED TEARS

FOR THE MEMORY AND THE
         GLORY OF THE YEARS
WE FOUGHT TO THE DEATH
                    WITH OUR PEERS

THIS CENTURY IS NOW BUT GONE
    TIME HAS COME TO PASS ON
TO SOLDIERS FOR YEARS TO COME
           THE PRIDE AND HONOR TO
                     CARRY BEYOND 
            THE MEMORIES OF THIS
                 CENTURY WARS WON
           BY VETERANS ONE BY ONE
            FOR WE WILL ALL BE GONE
