What do we observe today?

We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance . . . Let pleasant paths invite the comings and goings of reverent visitors and fond mourners.  Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generation that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided country.

Maj. Gen. John A. Logan – 1868

Over the Hills and Far Away

Ye boys and girls that have a mind.
To leave your troubles far behind.
Enlist and take a soldiers’ pay.
Go over the hills and far away!

We’ll fight in dry Afghanistan,
To keep the peace in foreign lands.
Learn the real soldiers’ way,
Go over the hills and far away!

Come and join the infantry,
Where the real soldiers fight, you’ll see.
Our comrades we will not betray,
Over the hills and far away.

It’s safe at home; we’d rather stay,
Watch our children grow and play.
We owe the crown, so now we’ll pay,
We’re over the hills and far away.

Over the hills we’ll march today,
And The Queen has called so we obey.
We’ll stand our ground and here we’ll stay.
Over the hills and far away!

The politicians sleep at night,
While out here we will stand and fight.
English, French, we’re brothers all,
Remember us if here we fall?

Over the hills we’ll march today,
The Queen has called so we obey.
We’ll stand our ground and here we’ll stay..
Over the hills and far away!

Over the hills we’ll march today,
The Queen has called so we obey.
We’ll stand our ground and here we’ll stay.
Over the hills and far away!
