Look at those names
Written there on the walls
They are names of our heroes
Those that were sent to fall

So many names on those walls
Our nation should be proud
And, as we read those names
Is enough for us cry out loud

Each of those names
Represent a person from our past
Somewhere they are some what related
And, yet their lives ended so fast

Many were called off to war
Before they hit their prime
Just to protect the freedom
Of the future of yours and mine

As you look at those names
Take some pride for what they've done
Though they are among they dead
By us just being here, means they won

So look at those walls
Just look at those thousands of names
They all served their country well
There's no reason to give them any shame
