Graciously sent by Kim
Conrad, the following poem epitomizes the anguish in the hearts of all
parents, as their sons and daughters commit to service, to protect the
freedoms we all enjoy. Kim is the daughter of Jerry George Sherman who
served in the Navy in the Pacific and the niece of Jerry’s brother,
Eugene, who served in the Army in Europe, during WWII. Our Son’s Out of the dawn they come a – marching, Down from the sky they come–a-winging, Up from the sea they are coming,
a-sailing’ These are our sons, so nobly defending Breathe now, a prayer for God to watch
o’er them. ~April 17, 1943 Earl E. Sherman
Glad in their youth and strength are they.
Bravely their nations’ foremen meeting
Proudly they march into the fray.
Ever seeking their mortal foe.
Up where the shells and bullets are singing.
Dropping their death to the monster below.
Challenging death, boldly they fight.
Sure they of winning, no thought of failing.
God will protect them, theirs is the Right.
All that is dear to the brave and the free.
That Freedoms great Flame, forever ascending
May always glow brightly on you and me.
And send them, successful, back from the fight.
Home to the arms of the mother’s that bore them.
To freedom and peace, and Liberties Light.
