Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

April 8, 2008
By Samantha Nantel, Milford, CT

These men we honor, who nature can’t defeat
Twenty-four hours and seven days a week
Twenty-one steps they march on their feet
Moistened gloves for a rifle grip neat
A rifle on shoulder away from the tomb
All symbols of the twenty one gun salute
Thirty minutes at a time, a life time of pride
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, always a guard at its
side
