    "All Gave Some, Some Gave All"

    Opening Song for the 2018 Memorial Day Concer in Washington DC



    Sung by Charles Esten "Some Gave All"



    "Some Gave All" Lyrics...

    I knew a man, called him Sandy Cane
    Few folks even knew his name
    But a hero, yes was he
    Left a boy, came back a man
    Still many just don't understand
    About the reasons we are free
    I can't forget the look in his eyes
    Or the tears he cried

    As he said these words to me
    All Gave Some, Some Gave All
    Some stood through for the red, white and blue
    And some had to fall
    And if you ever think of me
    Think of all your liberties and recall
    Some Gave All

    Now Sandy Cane is no longer here
    But his words are oh so clear
    As they echo throughout our land
    For all his friends who gave us all
    Who stood their ground and took the fall
    To help their fellow man
    Love your country and live with pride
    And don't forget those who died
    America can't you see?

    Another beautiful song for the Military and those of us who deeply appreciate them..."The Impossible Dream" sung by Jim Nabors in an

    old TV Gomer Pyle scene. In the background on stage was the United States Marine Band at the time. Lyrics posted below. Nabors died

    last year. He had an incredible voice as you probably know.


    To dream the impossible dream
    To fight the unbeatable foe
    To bear with unbearable sorrow
    And to run where
    The brave dare not go
    To right the unrightable wrong
    And to love pure and chaste from afar
    To try when your arms are too weary
    To reach the unreachable star
    This is my quest
    To follow that star
    No matter how hopeless
    No matter how far
    To fight for the right
    Without question or pause
    To be willing to march,
    March into hell
    For that heavenly cause
    And I know
    If I'll only be true
    To this glorious quest
    That my heart
    Will lie peaceful and calm
    When I'm laid to my rest
    And the world will be
    Better for this
    That one man, scorned
    And covered with scars,
    Still strove with his last
    Ounce of courage
    To reach the unreachable,
    The unreachable,
    The unreachable star
    And I'll always dream
    The impossible dream
    Yes, and I'll reach
    The unreachable star

    While Iím not keen on the idea of war, nobody really is, I have great respect for those who serve(d) their country.

    A friend that I made while in the Marines was our bazooka shooter. We got hit early one morning just as the sun was rising. The Capt. had sent him to the outer left part of the flank that we had set up. I think he got two rounds off before he took a direct hit in the center of his chest. He bled to death where he stood. It was our only casualty for several more months. I never knew losing a friend that you didn’t know that well could hurt so much. I felt compelled to write a letter to his parents. I did hear back from them.
