Hello Young Soldier of the Vietnam War - A Poem

Hello young soldier of the Vietnam War
What guides your noble swagger
In these dreadful foreign shores?
The courage of your mocking stance
Is not mere vanity
It shows your pride, your bravery
Your pure humanity!
Hello young Marine of the Vietnam War
What guides your fearsome prowess
In the jungles you explore?
Your boots, your rifle, are all you possess
In these tumultuous of days
They cannot hide your burning soul
A fire that’s set ablaze!
And in your sweat-drenched chest
There beats a heart of finest gold
Forged in the battles of Bunker Hill
Of Lexington and Concord
The breath of Freedom guides you now
And will until the end
I pray it guides you ever more
For on your courage we depend!
