Death on The Beaches of Normandy

Their courageous bodies lay like garland 
on the sandy shores of Normandy, 
Their duty there well defined.
Fearless of every returning home 
And with their dying breath's they whispered
For God, Country and the Flag
Let Freedom Ring, Let Freedom Ring
With their last full measure of loyalty
and impeccable divine gratitude. 
Honor now their vestment!
Their deaths filled with Integrity!

   The sacrificed their lives 
    Not  for "Honor or Glory!"
    For "The Stars and Stripes!"                                                                                               
    Known as "Old Glory!"
