“We toast our faithful comrades
Now fallen from the sky
And gently caught by God’s own hand
To be with Him on high.
To dwell among the soaring clouds
They knew so well before
From dawn patrol and victory roll
At heaven’s very door.
And as we fly among them there
We’re sure to hear their plea
“Take care, my friend; watch your six,
And do one more roll. . . just for me.”
“One More Roll” by Commander Gerald Coffee
written at Hanoi in 1968.
