Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings, Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things. You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung, high in the sunlit silence, hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long delirious, burning blue I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace, where never lark, or even eagle flew, and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod the high untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand and touched the face of God.

SP5, AMARAL, U.S., ARMY You are an American hero, whose ultimate sacrifice, will, not be forgotten. Rest well, brave soldier. Thank you, for your sacrifice and honorable service, to this great nation. So young a life, so great a sacrifice. "SOLDIER," By George L. Skypeck, RegTM, All Rights Reserved. (No reproduction, without prior permission, By Mr. Skypeck)~ I was, that which others, did not want to be. I went, where others feared, to go and did, what others failed, to do. I asked nothing, from those, who gave nothing and reluctantly accepted, the thought, of eternal loneliness, should I fail. I have seen the face, of terror, felt, the stinging cold, of fear and enjoyed, the sweet taste, of a moments love. I have cried, pained and hoped, but most, of all, I have lived times, others would say, were best forgotten, at least someday, I will be able, to say, that I was proud, of what I was, A SOLDIER.
