I never dreamed it would be me, my name for all eternity, recorded here at this hallow place, alas, my name, no more my face. "In the line of duty," I hear them say: my family now the price to pay. My folded flag stained with their tears; we only had those few short years. The Patch no longer on my Sleeve, I sleep now in eternal rest. My sword I pass to those behind, and pray they keep this thought in mind.  I never dreamed it would be me, and with heavy heart and bended knee, I ask for all here from the past: Dear God, let my name be the last.
