LEFT FOR EDWARD DONALD ABBOTT
POSTED ON 11.2.2000
For a brave soldier from Yuba City, California...PFC. Edward Donald Abbott, USA.
Goodbye, America's heroes, we have shamefully failed to stand by you, for all the wrong reasons, which had tempted us aside! Now we must pay the price for letting those who survived down, as well knowing some who didn't have to die have died! We must honor them, every day when we see their names upon the Wall! And from every corner of the land, they answered to the call! Every SOLDIER, sailor, airman, and Marine and Coast Guardsman, too...they all gave their lives so we could live beneath the old Red, White, and Blue. For those who've gone before, we say "WELL DONE! Be thou at peace!" We salute PFC Edward Donald Abbott, USA, whose devotion to DUTY...whose devotion to HONOR...and ABOVE ALL!..whose devotion to GOD and our COUNTRY!...the land that he loved...the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave...will NEVER...I say again, will NEVER be extinguished from our minds!
