NO GREATER LOVE
No Greater Love


The Vietnam Veterans Memorial serves as a testament to the sacrifice of American military personnel during one of this nation's least popular wars.

By erecting this memorial, it was hoped that the issue of the veterans and their sacrifice could be separated from the U.S. policy in the war, thereby creating a venue for reconciliation.

The Wall

There's a wall  of marble five hundred feet long -
Ten feet high, scribed with names of those who died, the strong.

There's more than fifty-eight thousand etched upon that stone -
Most of them died so young this life, they've never known.

It's such a small tribute to those who fought our war -
Such a small price we pay to those who gave much more.

Their name carved in a rock that most of us won't read -
Not near enough praise to give for their most gracious deed

Seems there's too many of us who don't really seem to care -
That we stayed home secure and safe while they died over there

Remember when you see that Wall with all those initials and names -
That those men were only pawns in one more of those deadly games

Let's hope what they gave had meaning, and that peace will always reign
That we won't have to send our young to fight and die again.

Del "Abe" Jones
