I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform;
so young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert,
he'd stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil;
how many mothers' tears?
How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
NO, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE
I heard the sound of Taps one night,
when everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant 'Amen.'
When a flag had draped a coffin
of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
of the mothers and the wives,
of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea.
Of unmarked graves in Arlington .
NO FREEDOM ISN'T FREE
Enjoy Your Freedom and
God Bless Our Troops.
When you receive this,
please stop for a moment
and say a prayer for our servicemen
Of all the gifts you could give a
U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best one.
God Bless all!

Il Silenzio - Melissa Venema (13 Yrs old) with Andre Rieu
About 6 miles from Maastricht, in the Netherlands, lie buried 8,301
American soldiers, who died in "Operation Market Garden" in the battles
to liberate Holland, in the fall & winter of 1944.
Every one of the men buried in the cemetery, as well as, those in the
Canadian & British military cemeteries, has been adopted by a Dutch
family who mind the grave, decorate it, & keep alive the memory of the
soldier they've adopted. It is even the custom to keep a portrait of "their"
American soldier, in a place of honor in their home.
Annually, on "Liberation Day," memorial services are held for
"the men who died, to liberate Holland."
The day concludes with a concert. The final piece, is always
"Il Silenzio," a memorial piece commissioned by the Dutch, & first
played in 1965, on the 20th anniversary of Holland's liberation. It has
been the concluding piece of the memorial concert ever since.
This year, the soloist was a 13-yr-old Dutch girl, Melissa Venema,
backed by André Rieu & his orchestra (the Royal Orchestra of the
Netherlands). This beautiful concert piece is based on the original
version of "Taps" & was composed by Italian composer Nino Rossi.

The place to share your life events
From California with Love
Hey, some of us have to live vicariously!
Cleaner may take a minute to upload.
This is the Marshall High School classes of 1960 and 1961 Website. What started out as a reunion website evolved into a "Stay In Touch" with classmates website. Each Classmate and our Guests have a personal page that is set up so they can share with us the things that have been going on with themselves and their families since High School. This is a great place to brag on your children and grandchildren, share your experiences and plans. Feel free to "link" your Facebook, My Space, You Tube, etc. to your personal page. Insert recent photos of you and your family, add your "since I left MHS" history, etc.
The site will be updated, active and useful for as long as class members want it to be. Update your personal information anytime you wish, and encourage other classmates to continue updating theirs. When you enter the Home Page, there is a box in the upper right hand corner that will indicate who else is using the site. To send an Instant Message to that person, simply click on the box and type in your message. When they get your message they can immediately respond. One can also go to the Message Center and contact anyone in the classes and/or our Guests, to begin a dialogue.
Addditionally, there are website Administrators available to assist with preparation of your personal page, as well as respond to questions you have about the site. They also, check new data entered by classmates to assure that it is admissable. Info60@marshallmavs.com for the class of 1960 and email@example.com for the class of 1961.
