Dear Sergeant,

An Iraqi brought a gun to kill

He told his friends that it was cool,

And when he pulled the trigger back,

It shot with a great crack.

Sergeant, I was a good soldier, I did What I was told,

I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got promoted fast

But Sergeant, when I went on patrol today,

I never said See u later,

I'm sorry Sergeant, I had to go, But Sergeant, please don't cry.

When the Iraqi shot the gun, He hit me and another,

And all because the Iraqi Got the gun from his leader.

Sergeant, please tell my parents; That I love them very much,

And please tell my lady ; my girlfriend; That it wasn't just a crush.

And tell my twin brother; That he is the only one now,

And tell my dear sweet grandmother; I'll be waiting for her now,

And tell my boys; That they always were the best;

Sergeant, I'm not the first, I'm no better than the rest.

Sergeant, tell my mom; I won't show up for leave

And never to forget this, And please don't let this pass.

Sergeant, why'd it have to be me? No one deserves this,

Sergeant, warn the others, Sergeant I left without my cross

And Sergeant tell the medics; I know they really did try,

I think I even saw a medic Trying not to cry.

Sergeant, I'm slowly dying, With a bullet in my chest,

But Sergeant please remember, I'm in heaven with the best, I died like the rest

Sergeant I ran as fast as I could,

When I heard that crack, Sergeant, listen to me if you would,

I wanted to go to college, I wanted to try things that were new,

I guess I'm not going with my boys to Brazil,

I wanted to get married, I wanted to have a kid,

I wanted to be a dad, Sergeant I wanted to live.

But Sergeant I must go now, The time is getting late,

Sergeant, tell my lady, I'm sorry but I had to cancel the date.

I respect you all, I always have, I know; you know it's true,

And Sergeant all I wanted to say is " DUTY FIRST "

No mission to difficult, no sacrifice to great

There are only 2 forces that have every been willing to give there life for you an American Soldier and Jesus.

Jesus save's your soul and the American soldier gives you freedom.

****In Memory of All the Fallen Soldiers in Iraq ****
