Stand In Silence

We stand the line in silence, without a word


Listening to the bugle as Taps is heard


We came to honor this Hero, to us completely unknown


He lost his life so far away, so far from his home.

He traveled with angels back to us, leaving combat behind


He did as he was told, following orders each time assigned.


Some he understood, others unknown, but he obeyed every day


In the performance of his duties he never swayed.

When the noise and smoke were at their worse and he drew upon his pride


His brothers all say he saved the day, fighting side by side.


Closer and closer the bullets came each time his courage began


And if he were here he would say; "'For them I'd do it again!"

We stand the line in silence, without a word


Listening to the bugle as Taps is heard


We came to honor this Hero, to us completely unknown


His family near, its the least we can do, now that he's home.
