|Zachary Taylor National Cemetery, Sectuion E
I have listed here in the next few pages some of the fighting men and crews who are buried
in the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery Section E close by my stepbrother, Sgt George Demers, who is with the Thomas Crew
at Site E179. I hope you will read their stories of patriotism, heroism and sacrifice.

There are pages after the crews that will give readers interesting information about
the planes these crews were flying.

THEY GAVE THEIR ALL
Our veterans all answered our nations call
When our freedoms were put
on the line,
They faltered not, but gave their all
From Omaha beach to the Rhine.
At Faid Pass and Corregidor
The odds proved to be too great,
surrender, a word we abhor,
So "Prisoner of War" was their fate.
They fought in the air, they fought on the ground,
They fought on the
seas and below,
They battled at Midway and the Japs they did pound,
And our confidence was starting to grow.
At Sicily, Anzio, Salerno and Rome
They fought the cold, mud and rain,
Cherbourgh they fought and thought about home,
Then blasted their way to the Seine.
Raboul and Guadalcanal
They mastered the mud and the heat,
At Kiska and Attu, more cold and fog,
They simply would
not be beat.
When the last shots were fired, the white flags were flown,
And the last
bomber called "Bombs Away",
They loaded the troupe ships and headed for home,
For that's where they wanted to stay.
We honor them now, as we do on these days
For answering the call
We honor the dead and the M.I.A.s,
Who gave their lives in the end.
