A Vietnam Veteran you were
Always wearing your Vietnam hat
Many thanks now warmly given
“Welcome Home” we say with that.
You touched the lives of many
With your guidance, grit and care
That special smile you wore
Engaged so much fanfare!
With purpose and passion you gave
An outstretched, helping hand
To veterans, family and friends
You were ‘our’ marching band!
With so much pride and pleasure
Event production was your game
Many moving parts to manage
You did well – with Parade acclaim!
With creative vision, spirit and style
Finding ways to ‘make it all work’
Not accepting ‘no’ for an answer
Just one of your little quirks!
A 'people' person you were
With a warm and friendly style
A 'ham & cheese' for sure
You could stay - talk for a while!
You raised the bar for all
Such a legacy you leave behind
We’ll forever honor your memory
You were uniquely one of a kind!
