freddyswan@live.com
submitted one of his
poems to share with us.
He served in Vietnam
with 2/1 in April 1969
and the poem was written
August 22,2017

Poem as follows :

When my country was in need
They did not have to plea
When the call went out
I did not take a knee
Buddies laid down their lives
We stood as they were laid to rest
The red strip on our flag
Represents the blood they gave
A flag is placed at their grave
When the anthem is played
Your freedom is the price they paid
