Today is May the 30th and it's Memorial Day.
Americans are paying tribute to those who fought and died for the USA.
116,516 American Soldiers died during World War I.
They died while fighting the enemy with their guns.
405,399 American soldiers died during World War II.
When I say that many have died for the USA, it's true.
58,220 American soldiers died while they fought in Vietnam.
Hundreds of thousands of soldiers have died for Uncle Sam.
The casualties were far less during the Persian Gulf War, only 219 Americans perished.
Many men fought and died in the face of danger because America is what they cherished.
(I dedicate this poem to those who have fought and died for the USA)
