Who on Earth knew they would fall?
Those inscribed upon the wall.
Sons and daughters, lovers, too,
Friends and fathers. No one knew.
No one could say why or when
or if they'd be home again.
No one could say why they're here
or if they should show their fear.

They answered their country's call,
Not knowing they'd give their all.
They went without a complaint.
On a ship or in a plane.
With their loved ones in their soul
To return their only goal


For my fallen brothers and sisters in arms.
Especially for my three friends honored below

I remember his laugh.

One cannot look at the wall without seeing a ghost of oneself looking back from among the names.

According to the U.S. Department of Defense, 58,135 Americans
