Here is a poem by Audie Murphy that I always liked---

Freedom Flies in your Heart like an Eagle

Dusty old helmet, rusty old gun, They sit in the corner and wait-

Two souvenirs of the Second World War That have withstood the time, and the hate.

Mute witness to a time of much trouble. Where kill or be killed was the law-

Were these implements used with high honor?

What was the glory they saw?

Many times I've wanted to ask them- And now that we're here all alone, Relics all three of a long ago war-

Where has freedom gone? Freedom flies in your heart like an eagle.

Let it soar with the winds high above Among the spirts of soldiers now sleeping, Guard it with care and love.

I salute my old friends in the corner, I agree with all they have said-

And if the moment of truth comes tomorrow, I'll be free, or by God, I'll be dead!

Audie Murphy had the credentials to speak of war and of honor and of freedom (IMO)
