SFC Henry F. Perkins
A Soldier's Soldier

We have lost another great one
Who can never be replaced
He will  be missed here on Earth
Though, he's gone to a better place.

Everybody who met Henry
Knew, they'd met a special man
Always helping, when he could
With Veterans always, in his plan.

He was selfless in his Service
For all others, who had Served
And he always tried to make sure
They got all he felt, they deserved.

A true Patriot in every sense
Sergeant First Class in the Army
And as their famous motto says
He was always, all that he could be.

Two combat tours in Vietnam
And one tour in Korea, too
A lifetime member of the VFW
When his Active Duty, was through.

A member of the Honor Guard
Assisting Families of those passed
Doing all he could to ease their pain
Because that's how, his die was cast.

Survived by, loving Wife Patsy
Three Daughters and two Sons
As he leaves on his journey
To that voice above, that hearkens.

Now, the time has come to Honor him
With all the praise that he deserved
So, the memory of this Great Man
Will, for now and always be, preserved.

Rest In Peace, Henry
