The lost
The forgotten
For a reason unknown
They died for their
country yet it was
be a secret.
Never to be retold.
Only to be buried
deep beneath the
red tape.
In the blink of an
eye over 200 were
gone my unit.
My comrades existed
no more on this plane.
Never was the truth
to be told.
Only a made up story.
How could that be?
How could i just go
along when i knew
Yet so many more
where gone then
just my unit.
Friends who were there
for me.
Comrades who were my
brothers in this bloody war.
All gone today i feel it
more then most.
I say goodbye to you.
Until i get to heaven.
You gave your life
for our country.

It is sad that when those who gave their life for us are forgotten ... we should never forget them and their sacrifice

You are so correct. We should not be lied to or have to lie about the incident. Thanks for the comment.
