David Maxwell Remembers 9-11-2001
 

David Maxwell's Son, Seth,  Serves in the 82nd Airborne






David Maxwell wrote this poem for his son and the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne...

 

Return To Main Street Bunkie...
Return To Attack On America...

 

 

AMERICAíS GUARD OF HONOR

 Americaís Guard of Honor,

Thatís what theyíre called.

The 82nd Airborne,

Brave, courageous and tall.

My son Seth is a proud member

Of that honored group,

Heís one of many,

A brave troop.

When the word came

To go to Iraq,

He went willingly and didnít shrink,

Or run to the back.

Heís now a Specialist, & hopes to make Sergeant,

Maybe heíll make the Army a career.

No matter what he chooses,

Iíll stand up and cheer.

Heís my American Solider, a member of the 82nd Airborne,

Brave, courageous and tall.

Heís fighting in Iraq,

To keep us free, one and all.
