Dedication:This poem is dedicated to ALL the Vietnam Vets. I'd also like to dedicate this to my uncle that never came home. AND to my Dad who foughtVietnam and will be forever my hero.

Too young to fight, too young to die
For reasons still we know not why
To keep us free and protect our rights
But was it enough to die and fight?

They went to fight so brave and true
to save this land for me and you
Some came home to find no fame
And some came home to live a life of shame

And so our youth, this war did steal
The pain, the grief, is so very real
They once were boys loved by all
And some are just names on a lonely Wall.

Young men sent were barely grown
To die so very far from home
Trained to fight across the sea
Only to protect you and me.
