As Whiskey Two we fought in Nam sent to help our Brothers In Arms and this

we did but sad to tell seven fell. Brave young men with courage fought the NVA

the Vietcong in the steamy jungles all went wrong.

Our wounded numbered four times as much missing limbs scars and such and

now we live with the memories of war. Time can heal our aches and pains but

battle scars they remain and our lives forever changed.

And now we have NZVA they've done so much come what may but do they

recognise all that befalls us. With rashes cancer PTSD deep inside there is no

harmony and agent orange smiles with glee.

Our Rangatira he has gone to take the parade upstairs with God but don't

hurry he'll wait till you get there. A Band of Brothers we must be to help

each other we are family let no one pass in despair or alone

On ANZAC Days we march with pride medals pinned left breast high and

with heavy hearts we remember those who are absent. Wipe your tears

and cry no more they're all upstairs with the Boss for sure just waiting

for the next roll call.

Vietnam Veterans

May no man dishonour their bravery...we lived in a cowering world... therefore needed brave men like the Vietnam Veterans. Dr Pham Kim Vinh
