The Forgotten War

Monday, May 28, 2018


We didn't do much talking
We didn't raise a fuss
But Korea really happened
So please remember us
We all just did our duty
But we didn't win or lose
A victory was denied us
But we never got to choose
We all roasted in summer
In winter, we damn near froze
Walking back from near the Yalu
With our blackened frozen toes
Like the surf the Chinese kept coming
With their bugles in the night
And we fired into their masses
Praying for the morning light
All of us just had to be there
And so many of us died
But now we're all but half forgotten
No one remembers how we tried
We grow few with the years now
And we still don't raise a fuss
But Korea really happened
So please - remember us.






OUR NATION HONORS
HER SONS AND DAUGHTERS
WHO ANSWERED THE CALL
TO DEFEND A COUNTRY
THEY NEVER KNEW
AND A PEOPLE
THEY NEVER MET


















So please - remember us.
