Carolina Soldiers country as flag
From out of South Carolina
where the lonely whippoorwills call
... and the giant magnolias bloom
came two brave men who gave their all...
They left this beautiful home place
and headed for Saddam's Palace
In the armor of bravery they were clad,
went to smoke the rats from Baghdad
These rolling hills and mountains
will see them no more
These true American solders
fell in a desert war
They have left their mark in time,
fallen way before their prime,
having braved a tyrant and freed a land
Their legacy is written in brave blood,
Carolina blood, in the hot Iraqi sand...

About Author... Faye Sizemore makes her home in the beautiful foothills of South Carolina with Grant, the love of her life, as well as three dogs, two cats, two parakeets and four nanny goats. Grant is a Vietnam Veteran having served with the US Marines in 1968-69 and is, of course, Faye's muse. Faye is deeply interested in Veterans' Affairs and Veterans' Causes. She is very proud of Grant and her poetry is an off-shoot of that pride.
