"Dede's Walk With God"

My Green Beret

War was upon them
Soon they were separated
He went to fight for his country
This very idea, she hated
They kept in close contact
Over the many years
She stayed at home
And cried many tears
He sent his love weekly
Via all the letters he wrote
Then one day there was a visit
Two officers came by  to quote
Yes, your loved one is gone
We are so very  sorry
Here is his purple heart
He earned for his country's glory
There's two other things
He wanted us to give you
The first is his Silver Wings
They are given to a chosen few
Next, he left you this letter
He wanted you to understand
He loved being a Green Beret
They're the finest in our land
It also said, I will never be far
I will always be by your side
Just remember all our memories
As in your heart I will bide
She dried her tears with tissues
Thinking of her proud Green Beret
She needed to be alone to find peace
Knowing he wouldn't chose any other way
Delilah M. (Dede) Haas


If you like to sing along, as I do here are the lyrics:
Ballad Of The Green Berets
Fighting soldiers from the sky
Fearless men who jump and die
Men who mean just what they say
The brave men of the Green Beret
Silver wings upon their chest
These are men, America's best
One hundred men will test today
But only three win the Green Beret
Trained to live off nature's land
Trained in combat, hand to hand
Men who fight by night and day
Courage pique from the Green Berets
Repeat The Chorus
Back at home a young wife waits
Her Green Beret has met his fate
He has died for those oppressed
Leaving her his last request
"Put silver wings on my son's chest
Make him one of America's best
He'll be a man they’ll test one day
Have him win the Green Beret"
Barry Sadler (Singer & lyrics)
