The bagpipes play Amazing Grace as people file
into the church;
Dress blues and a sea of black are filing the
Tributes spoken and dedications given by loved
Tears shared as the Honor Guard stands at
Outside the K-9's sit next to their handlers;
Mounted patrols stand sentry;
The 21-gun salute sounds as the motorcade
The hearse carries the flag-covered casket;
And leads a line of cars that stretches as far
as the eye can see;
Helicopters fly over head as the white doves
Somber faces express the sorrow felt by all as
the call signs ring out;
Today we say good-bye to our Fallen Heroes.
Gone but Never Forgotten.
