It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
General George S. Patton
The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.
Oh, it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ ‘Tommy, go away’;
But it’s ‘Thank you, Mister Atkins’, when the band begins to play—
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
Oh, it’s ‘Thank you, Mister Atkins,’ when the band begins to play.
