Letters to the Editor

Letter: In Honor: American Knight

To the Editor:

From the distant sands of Normandy

To the jungles of Vietnam

In the snowy snows of Korea

Came the march to Arlington

The crosses glisten bright

Even on the darkest days

The shadows are filled with light

Upon these ones so brave

So for all of you who have gone to war

And stood at the gates of Hell

And have seen destruction spread it's wings

That words can never tell

But in your eyes I see a tale

Of courage over fear

Even in the darkness of the night

Your light does persevere

After being in the horror

That only war can bring

Your heroics are still resounding

From sea to shining sea.

God Bless

Scott Morask
