Honoring Fallen Medal of Honor Recipient Jason Dunham

Semper Fi, Jason Dunham
(Listen to Taps while reading the poem.)

country as flag - medium

Marine Corporal Jason L. Dunham - Medal of Honor Recipient (Died April 22, 2004 from wounds received in Iraq)It is said of you and all
who wear and have worn the uniform
of Semper Fi...
"Once a Marine
always a Marine!"

And so very true
is it for Marines like you,
who answered the noble call,
for America and fellow citizens all,
always standing bravely tall
every waking hour of each long day
going about your duty the Marines' way,
even willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice
U.S. Navy / Marine Medal of Honor medalto save others from the same deadly price.

Jason Dunham, you
represented America's red, white, and blue,
in such an unselfish way
that words could never properly convey.

U.S Marine Corps sealSo, as you look down from Above...
know that you will have America's constant love
and remembered for being the man and Marine you were,
whose great heroic example will always endure.

This poem is my way of paying tribute to one of my youngest son's fellow Marines, a uniquely
brave young man, whose ultimate sacrifice of heroism, will always exemplify unreserved
love and pride of America . . . He made the USA better for just being Jason Dunham!
