Names and faces only a blur in time
Only a few remember the men that gave their lives
Many can't forget the era of bloodshed and terror
But what did they give to the heroes that survived
Did they wait for them with open arms and a firm embrace
Or did they turn their back and close their eyes
Shunned by the society that created them
Never honored, only forgotten like useless rubble
Their great deeds and sacrifices go unmentioned
Society cruel and unforgiving
Was it their choice or just their duty
They followed their orders and gave their commands
They fought for an honored creed and a defenseless nation
They gave their lives and became silent heroes
And forgotten soldiers
