"Winged Friend"

The B-25 not many alive
The plane of World War 2
Many were downed in a hail of fire
She went down with her faithful crew
Some returned with barely a wing
Sometimes with no flaps to land
They bailed out reaching for safety
Hoping for God's saving hand
Like a child who falls from atop his bicycle
Many a bruised knee occured
Yet they still flew the B-25's
Their vision was never blurred
Many crews of close comradery
Closer than brothers at times
Never knowing if they would return
Or end up behind enemy lines
Yet they fought through thick and thin
Giving their lives in defense
So that we might live in freedom
Without fear of recompense
Gently they faded into history
Happy to come home to their wives
Never forgetting their fallen comrades
Or the sacrifices made for other lives
All were heroes in their own way
Their recognition long over due
Hail to the men who fight for America
Under the red,white and blue
