Talking Introduction:
Of the 58,000 plus US service personnel who were killed in Vietnam, 5 were only 16 years of age,the average age being just 23 years.
Their names are engraved permanently on the Vietnam wall.
More than 17 million members of the armed forces perished during world war2.
1 million, 700 thousand men and women of the commonwealth forces died in two world wars.
Of these the remains of 925 thousand were found and their graves are marked by headstones.
The headstones are permanent and uniform and there is no distinction made on account of military, civil rank, race or creed.
Amongst the personal effects of the many war dead, last letters to loved ones were often found and sent on.This is one such letter.
singing:
To part I know is bitter sweet,
To leave this war-torn land,
but the lord my maker, I have to meet,
as he takes my lowly hand.
Don't cry my love, don't cry for me,
the tears are all for you,
though my eyes no longer see the world,
my spirit is brand new.
Don't cry my love, don't cry for me,
the tears are all for you,
though my eyes no longer see the world,
my spirit is brand new.
Talking:
I remember fondly your smile, so soft and sweet,the way we kissed and held each others hands,the plans we made, of a future yet to come.
What now my love, I ask, what now?
SInging:
Remember me as I was then,
when we were so in love,
these words I'll write, with earthly pen,
then wait for you above.

The years may pass and come and go,
you'll find true love again,
some pain and sorrow, you may know,
but, don't forget my name.

Oh don't forget, have no regrets,
please don't forget my name,
some pain and sorrow, you may know,
but, don't forget my name.
Talking:
The sounds of battle have long gone,and my comrades surround me.
I feel my life slipping away,
as I am engulfed by darkness.
I know I will not see another day,
but I will carry your image with me to eternity.
Singing:
The years may pass and come and go,
you'll find true love again,
some pain and sorrow, you may know,
but don't forget my name.
please don't forget my name.
