Sentinel Guarding the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier Through Hurricane Irene

Tomb of The Unknown Soldier

Soldiers who gave their lives
In selfless humility
Asking nothing in return
Fighting for you and me
The struggle to bring about
The values that we believe

Humbly giving of themselves
Remaining nameless
Acting with great courage
Now honored and shameless
The names are not known
But their honor is never forgotten

Giving their lives for us
Making the ultimate sacrifice
Fighting for a belief
Fighting for what is right

On the battle field they lay
No longer with name
Brazen from wounds
But never from shame
Walking boldly in the spirit
Of the hope they freely gave

The tomb of the unknown soldier
