Veterans of the Vietnam Conflict

When I was Young and Wild; No longer a Child, I went to War with my Brothers.
From the North, East, the South and the West; we were, America's best.
Many lost their Girls and Wives to Jody; along with their Booty!
He was their best friend! While we were away, Jody did play!
We went to fight; for you, and the Red White and Blue.
We were taught: To shoot between the eyes, that way we knew they would die!
We were highly trained in Weapons of Mass Destruction and, Combat (Hand to Hand)!
Bullets would scream by our heads, one Inch closer, we'd be dead.
The sounds of the Big Guns would pierce our Ear Drums. Bombs and Napalm would fall from the Sky: Many men died on both sides; No matter how much, they tried to hide! Booby Traps and Land Mines were all around, on Tree Trunks, in and on the ground.
Atop the Trees, Charlie would wait for us, to take his Bait.
Immersed in Water; with Weapons above our heads, slowly we moved, make NO sound or we'd be dead.
Our way through Villages we made: Children approached us with Grenades.
Charlie would hide everywhere, of our Soldiers, they were scared!
The Cong were famous for the Tunnels in the ground, in our Tunnel Rats they were Bound, Armed with only a 45, they left no none alive!
The Jungles were full of Tigers and Snakes, our Lives they could take!
Those 2 days in the Rear; the Women we had to fear! "5 Dollars GI, Me make You Feel Real Good"! Entice us they would! Inside them; a Razor Blade they would embed, as to make Us Dead!
Our Tracers Red, their Tracers Green, in the night they could be seen! To Fight at Night, No Moon light, 'twas a Terrible Fright!
Our MOTTO was: NEVER GIVE UP NOR ADMIT DEFEAT! There was No Call for Retreat!
As We Charged Into Battle, We would Yell: REMEMBER THE "BLACK HORSE"! WE'LL SEE YOU IN HELL! We were the Cav, the 11th Cav. No fight did we Loose, Most Fights we did choose.

A Solider Then, A Solider Now,
