Tribute to Dad and all who Graciously Serve

Dad on bottom row, far left with his comrades of the 489th Bomber Group

I am a daughter

and a veteran's biggest fan

Dad was only twenty-two

what a brave, courageous man

He fought the good fight

so we could live free

All those in uniform

sacrificed dearly for me

His missions were flown

over Germany and France

So we could enjoy freedom

and have half a chance

Thirteen missions flown

by the eighth Army Air-Force

Halesworth, England

would be there 'said course'

Many close calls

would threaten their day

They kept persevering

and made sure to pray

Remember to thank those

who fought despite fear

Not only on Memorial day

but everyday of the year
