I never dreamed it would be me

     My name for all eternity

Recorded here at this hallowed place

     Alas, my name, no more my face

 

"In the line of duty" I hear them say

     My family now the price will pay

My folded flag stained with their tears

     We only had those few short years

 

The badge no longer on my chest

     I sleep now in eternal rest

My sword I pass to those behind

     And pray they keep this thought in mind

 

I never dreamed it would be me

     And with heavy heart and bended knee

I ask for all here from the past

     Dear God, let my name be the last

Fellowship will follow the ceremony in the foyer, with pianist Mark Cohen.
