    Well, you may be right Biscuits; however, the song is more for the benefit of those left behind like immediate family, other relatives and non-military friends that think highly of us, deserving or not! :D

    Brothers:

    It was long days of boredom in heat and in cold. Some would come home, some would never grow old They gave it their best in those far away places. Their names fade away, but never their faces.

    You remember their laughter and even their tears. Kind of surprising after all of these years, But bonds forged in blood will always run deep. And old memories pop up sometimes in your sleep.

    We were young once and strong, and brave in our youth And those that remain are now long in the tooth. Though our bodies are slow and our hair has turned gray. Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday.

    When courage was currency, they paid the price. They gave all they had and didn’t think twice Everyone did their best. Everyone played a part. And our fallen friends stay always young in our hearts.

    At the end of a quiet day as the sun wanes, Sometimes I can still hear a bugle’s refrain. Very soft in my heart and soft on the wind All is well. Safely rest. My brothers. My friends.
