How We Recall by Roger J. Robicheau (Sp 5, US Army)
 The Poetic Plumber
How we recall that day we swore 
To serve our country to the core 
That clothing issued brought a view 
Of raw recruits, this showed so true 
Remembered hair was cut away 
This look for quite awhile would stay 
Our trek before too long did show 
New GI’s marching, row by row 
And then one day emerged a form 
Each proud trained troop in uniform 
We followed orders as we should 
To do our best, in pride we would 
Some served in peace, some went to war 
Brave heroes passed through Heaven’s door 
We cherished friends who served with us 
Great buddies all, how we’d discuss 
So many thoughts will never wane 
For what we shared, let closeness reign 
Our bond was tight, the best to see 
For when we served, this had to be 
The purpose was to keep you free 
God Bless the brave, deservedly
