Written while in Korea, it captures the loneliness and despair of being away from home...
V) Helicopters flying into the sun
Going off to battle
A young man, Thrust into war
Away from home for the first time
(C) In a foreign country
Unsure of himself
Doesn't know who to trust
Or who is friend or foe
(V) Girlfriend back home
Don't know if he's alive anymore
Mom is worried too
Will he make it through
(FX) Enter Rain again, then Taps played somber, then 3 rifle shots
(spoken) On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation,
Please accept this flag as a token our appreciation for the faithful and
honorable service rendered by your loved one......I 'm sorry ma'am...
He was a good boy...
