We Regret to Inform You

Dear parents of the deceased
We regret to inform you of this release
Your son was mortally wounded in combat
His valor in finest tradition and all that

Dear wife and children of this brave man
We regret to inform you of this telegram
Your husband and father killed by sniper fire
He was aiding the wounded until he expired

Dear America, home of our war dead,
We regret to inform you about all this bloodshed
For their gallantry under hostile action are sent
These silver stars and medals from the President

Dear combat comrades of these dear fallen men
We regret to inform you that your memories never end
The sights and sounds of their death keep pounding away
Their names carved on a wall as you kneel down to pray

– Paul Cameron –
1st Inf. Div.
