  • A very touching poem. My Great Grand-father had this on the wall of his bed room. It didn't mean much to me until after his death in 1977. I think the sentiment holds true today, that the torch of freedom is being passed on to a new generation of fighting men and now women. It is their cause that we as a nation should rally behind them and give them the support and respect that is due them. And let's not forget to remember those who gave their all, for their comrades in arms and their country, this Memorial Day.

  • wow awesome poem, i think the younger generation (me) has a tendancy to forget everything these brave men and women did for our country. The things they went through was horrible, and we are able to enjoy the freedoms that they fought for so bravely.

  • I had to memorize this poem in the seventh grade under Mrs. Nell Prince in Cowan Tenn. I still remember every word of it today. We need more lessons like this. It builds character in us
