This poem was written by my father, Carl Haselton, Jr. around the year, 1957. Memorial Day
Old Soldiers do not fade away!
Their memory is with us today!
Their lives they gave,
Their country to save!

Let's say thanks to them for their care.
For the battle's fray they did bear,
Faced death for us out there!
Oh! Say for them a thankful prayer!

God is gracious to us all,
For they did answer their Country's Call.
For the cause of Freedom they did fight,
Spilled their blood with all their might.

Greater love than this hath none,
To give one's all for the Victory won.
Jesus Christ expressed the Love
That only comes from God above!

Yes, Old Soldiers march with us today.
Their courage and valor show us the way
To face the crises of Satan's forces.
Turn them to God and His Resources!
