Poetry to Honor Our P.O.W & M.I.A. Veterans
Remembering those who suffered more and those whose fate we do not know.


"Captive’s  Pledge"
 was inspired by
a story told by
P.O.W. John McCain.

Captive’s  Pledge

          by Roger W Hancock


Soldier’s battle for survival,
comrades fought to death.
Evasion of detection sought,
among the jungle brush.
Heart pounds, breathing deep,
death or life as prisoner of war.
Solitary confinement at first,
later a welcomed cell, too crowded.
Bamboo bars with bamboo rugs,
day guards beyond arms reach.
One by one each day, each night,
time’s passing tracks astray.
One man of simple starts,
bravery, endurance his might.
Love of country inspiration,
strength to live each day.
Over time enduring patience,
bamboo needle sews his flag.
Hidden by day flown at dusk,
when guards not near to hear.
The highlight of the day awaits,
when prisoners recite the pledge.
Searching this cell they found our flag,
captors beat the one who sewed.
Eyes swollen in dim of light,
red piece of cloth, new flag begins.
No defiance, not for himself,
but that the pledge be said.
Sacrifice we pay, to our flag we say,
allegiance to our county’s might.
Bravery feels not the courage,

survival seems our motive.
One does what must to survive,
as we pledge, we live our lives.

Long Last, Laid to Rest

Inspired by the recoved remains of,
World War II 2nd Lt Ernest E. Martin,
US Army, of Hanover, Montana.
MIA, 1944 - Remains found, 2000 -
Identified & laid to rest 2008.

Long Last, Laid to Rest
by Roger W Hancock
American Soldiers fight abroad,
duty to their country.
Each man fights the battles brave,
victory over fear inside.
Wounded in battle brave,
sent back home to heal.
Valor ‘till wounded death,
telegram sent to family.
Honors to those returned,
have held the wartime memories.
Soldiers brave, left unknown,
captured or dead… remained missing.
Offensive against German towns,
Eastward through the forest.
Battle of Vossenack and Schmidt;
German, American confrontation.
Longest battle of the war,
left many fates unknown.
Fifty-six years beyond the battle,
American MIA is found.
Remains are found in year 2000,
Clearing wartime ordinance.
eight long years to identify,
by DNA, Dental and circumstance.
Now a hero is laid to rest,
duty done, may peace be yours.
To you our gratitude,
2nd Lieutenant Ernest E. Martin.

 The fallen, MIA, POW
Those Now Gone

          by Roger W Hancock

Fallen Servicemen,

for country fought;
liberty, freedom,

the primary reason.


They gave themselves,

that we be free


Fathers, mothers,

sisters, and brothers;
our dearly departed,

life for country given.


Families broken,

for liberty.


Veterans who served,

and lived to tell;
the horrors, and risks,

now sleep in peace.


Served their country,

for our security.


Unknown Soldier, MIA,

remembrance our way,
to honor you as well,

victims of a warriors hell.


Served, now lost that,

our lives be free.


Sleep now Sleep tight

rest now, duty done,
price paid in life or death.
The vigilance now be ours.
