My dad, Leo D. Casebeer
Served aboard the Battleship New Jersey during WWII
VETERAN’S DAY 2014
Lost and fallen we may be:
The dreadful price of liberty.
Counted now among the lost;
Our souls applied toward freedom’s cost.
But do not think us lost in vain.
Despite the grief, despite the pain,
Our sacrifice was gladly paid,
That freedom’s banner never fade.
If you would honor what we’ve done,
Hold high the torch from sun to sun.
Lift up the flag that all may see
The proud result of liberty.
