Dover by John Flynn

Honoring our Fallen Heroes lost in The Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq. Rest in Peace, Brothers, and Sisters!

Dover Lyrics by John Flynn
Elijah was a sergeant, 42 years old
from Mesa Arizona, Elijah won’t grow old
Patrick was with C Troop, Second Armored Cav
His buddies all remember how Patrick loved to laugh
Seth was from East Brunswick, just a newly wed
Somewhere in New Jersey a young widow bows her head
Daniel was from Boston shipped out from Fort Bragg
His mother got back Daniel with a folded flag

Oh big airplane bring’em down easy
Out of the Delaware skies
Oh big airplane Dover is waiting
to welcome the fallen you fly

William was in Anbar, combat engineer
1st Marine Division, William isn’t here
Alan rebuilt bridges for Battalion B
Next to cause of death they wrote the letters I E D
Gussie was a scrub nurse hailing from Fort Bliss
Gussie had a spirit this world’s gonna miss
Jeremiah’s son cries on his mamma’s knee
There was no armor plating on his dad’s humvee

Oh big airplane bring’em down easy
Out of the Delaware skies
Oh big airplane Dover is waiting
to welcome the fallen you fly

Scrubbed wooden pallets with white straps cinched over
Long boxes of flag draped aluminum
The C-5 is crowded when it lands in Dover
The honor guard boards and makes room again

Making straight for Nineveh, just like Jonah’s whale
Holy truth you swallow, overseas you sail
Precious is the cargo sacred was their gift
offered in a sandstorm from which your wings lift
Those who would take notice can’t watch you set down
Behind barbed wire fences miles from their town
No one breathes to question this silent parade
Except for the anguished loved ones left to say

Oh big airplane bring’em down easy
Out of the Delaware skies
Oh big airplane Dover is waiting
to welcome the heroes you fly home

The complete Washington Post story can photos can be found here.

As pointed out in the fine Post piece, the young Marine Officers who graduated from Class of 5-67 went off to face some of the fiercest fighting the Vietnam War had to offer. The years 1967 and 1968 saw 28,300 Americans killed — nearly half of the 58,000+ names on The Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial.

This week — May 3rd through May 6th — those who survived the war and those still able to travel, will hold a reunion. Welcome Home, Brothers, and Sisters! Semper Fi!

Thanks to Rich Roan for bringing this to our attention!
