Quotes for Fallen Soldiers

We refer to them as fallen soldiers – those who have died in service to their country.  But really they are our heros. They loved not their life unto death but gave it up for honor and service to their fellow man/woman. The unsung heros who show us what love looks like and what true honor and bravery is.  God bless them Lord, as they dance with the Angels tonight in Heaven with You.

“Fallen Soldier”  by Nathan Fair

The medal that his dad gave him
Tucked away in his duffle bag
He said don’t wory about a thing, Paps
You’ll be gettin’ this when I’ll get back

Walkin’ down the road
Through the city on a routine patrol
Shots rang out and he hits the ground
Sergeant yells “Man down”

This is for the ones who ain’t comin’ back
Who fought for their country in Iraq
And they left their families at home
To come over here and die alone

I carried his coffin onto the plane
And gave a salute as they read off his name
We packed away that duffle bag
And the Silver Star that he got from his dad

There was one old men when we got off the plane
With no one there for him to greet
But the whole damn company shook his hand
We were brothers to the son he will never see

This is for the ones who ain’t comin’ back
Who fought for their country in Iraq
And they left their families at home
To come over here and die alone

This is for the ones who ain’t comin’ back
Who fought for their country in Iraq
And they left their families at home
To come over here and die alone
