To honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.


season after season, day after day a scene somewhat surreal some come
this day with respects to pay some come with wounds to heal 

some travel far, some hardly at all, but for them it's still the same to
honor those that gave their all and to seek out a special name 

some stand in silence, thoughts all their own quiet reflection is their
way others speak of memories of a different time in that land so far 

hour upon hour through out every day a tribute to those that fell
fathers, sons, daughters, friends searching for a name they know so 

imprinted forever, those special names one and all had heard the call
their honor and courage never questioned theirs the greatest sacrifice 
of all 

placed there to honor this great country's best from places large and
small for an eternal debt of gratitude is owed by one and all to those 
who's names forever remain inscribed upon The Wall
