Shadows On The Sands of Normandy

Their Courage's bodies lay like garland 
on the sandy shores of Normandy, 
their Honor there defined.
"For Freedom!
For one and all preserved. 
Their deaths now their honeymoon!
Their vestments filled with Integrity!
Not for "Honor or Glory!"
For "The Stars and Stripes!"
  The flag known as "Old Glory!"
