Pitterle-Beaudoin American LegionPost 189

A soldier died today
He died on foreign soil,
So we are free to play
His service was a toil .

No mention of his death,

No mention of his service,
He served the USA
So we are free to pray.

A player died today
He died in his home state,
He played among the best
His death a tragic fate.

The airwaves shared the story

Of this player in his glory
Millions mourned his death
He had his final breath.

A soldier died today

So we are free to play,
His name is yet unknown
But God has claimed His own.
