Honoring Fallen Medal of Honor Recipient Paul Ray Smith

Give All That I Am
(Listen to Taps while reading the poem.)

Paul Ray Smith,
a nation salutes you for living
your words, "Give all that I am",
and dying to keep them
for the sake
of your fellow troops
and love of the USA.

And oh...
how your words ring so true
for all who share
the Medal of Honor with you.
All going above and beyond
the call of duty
with exceptional valor,
doing what must be done
under the most difficult battle conditions
to complete the mission,
putting self last . . . and all others first.

Paul Ray Smith,
your fellow citizens
proudly welcome you
to the hall of America's greatest heroes...
where your name
and "Give all that I am"
will always remain!
