You, the one I chose to fight for,
To make your days free of slavery,
To clear the path for your inheritors,
To walk upon as all free men do,
To choose your own leaders,
To follow any desired religion,
To educate yourself in any way,
To use your knowledge
To make the road ahead
Easier for you,
And make yourself proud
To be anything you wish to be,
To be worry free of
Any foreign invasion,
To rely upon me to do the fighting.
If I die, I did it for you.
 
All you have to do is:
 
Always remember me,
Especially on
Every Memorial Day.
God bless you.
