Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...

The best "TAPs" you've ever heard

"One More Roll"

Capt. Jerry Coffee, USN Ret.

We toast our hearty comrades
Now fallen from the sky,
And gently caught by God's own hand
To be with Him on high,
To dwell among the soaring clouds
They knew so well before,
From dawn patrol and victory roll
At heavens' very door.
And as we fly among them there,
We're sure to hear their plea:
"Take care, my friend,
Watch your six,
And do one more roll...just for me."
