By Kellen Hinton

Someone’s Child, left long ago,

A strange Land,

An unmarked grave, fields of green,

Resting quiet,

Just eighteen,

Winds of freedom, wash us now,

Remember him,

This I vow.


By Jacob Schuler

Remember those who served before.

Remember those who are no more.

Remember those who serve today.

Remember them as we eat and play.

Remember our protectors who are not home today.

Remember them all on Memorial Day.
