Memorial Day 2010

A Memorial Day message from a Veteran.

Jacamo Peterson says:
To All Veterans,regardless of Branch. I wish you a Peaceful and Thought Filled Day of Remembrance of those we lost. I cannot adequately express my feelings, lest the rage show through, so rather than rant on a PTSD tirade.I wish to share a military verse with ya'll. My Son spent six years in the Cavalry as a Scout Sergeant and I am super proud of him. So this Poem is from the United States Cavalry,from dirty shirt blue to tiger stripes. Always in the the fight.
I also wish to express my sincere gratitude to all of you who are not Veterans for your undying and loyal support. Certainly most of the Nation are not,and I thank God you do not have to carry that burden of memory. We carry it for you.
Anyway, Scouts Out! God Bless America! and God Bless Texas!

Aechaeology 501: The Field Trip

Poem: "Fiddler's Green"

Halfway down the trail to Hell,

In a shady meadow green

Are the Souls of all dead troopers camped,

Near a good old-time canteen.

And this eternal resting place

Is known as Fiddlers' Green.

Marching past, straight through to Hell

The Infantry are seen.

Accompanied by the Engineers,

Artillery and Marines,

For none but the shades of Cavalrymen

Dismount at Fiddlers' Green.

Though some go curving down the trail

To seek a warmer scene.

No trooper ever gets to Hell

Ere he's emptied his canteen.

And so rides back to drink again

With friends at Fiddlers' Green.

And so when man and horse go down

Beneath a saber keen,

Or in a roaring charge of fierce melee

You stop a bullet clean,

And the hostiles come to get your scalp,

Just empty your canteen,


And go to Fiddlers' Green.

The origin and author of "Fiddler's Green" is unknown. It was believed to have originated in the 1800's and was composed as a song sung by the soldiers of the 6th and 7th Cavalry. Its first known appearance in published form was in a 1923 Cavalry Journal.

Note: Since the return of American forces from Vietnam, an additional line has been added to the poem. Just prior to the end, the line "And put your pistol to your head," has been added. Perhaps this is in tribute to veterans who are experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome; I don't know. Therefore, the poem appears in its original form except for the annotation:
