    I am the soul of warriors past
    I am neither young nor old and
    the color of my skin is not important.
    You'll find me in many forgotten places.
    I lie in flowering meadows in France
    and in neatly arranged fields in the Philippines.
    I lie in Arlington National Cemetery
    and in graveyards scattered throughout America.
    I also lie on forgotten hills in Korea,
    under the jungle floors of Vietnam
    and on ocean bottoms the world over.
    I still sit in the cockpit of my fighter,
    covered with vines and jungle growth in Borneo
    and I rest uncomfortably in a shallow hole
    scooped from soil on the Ledo Road in Burma.
    I lie in Gettysburg, Kings Mountain, Baghdad,
    and on countless other battlefields.
    I am proud. I am strong.
    I bow to no one other than my God.
    My blood paid for your freedom
    but you treat me as if I was a stranger.
    You can see the color of my blood
    waving proudly from your flag
    I am the soul of warriors past.
    Remember me.

    Another great piece of work! Maybe we should join efforts and publish something?

    Just a thought
