Hey there, names Steve Rogers.
All I ever wanted was to become a soldier, I wanted to contribute to my country, men were laying down their lives, I had no right not to do the same. But because of my size and health they wouldn't take me.

Until I met Doctor Erksine. He recruited me for a top secret project. To create a new breed of super soldier. He gave me a chance to become the hero to my country I had dreamed of.

I fought the head of Nazi research department HYDRA and defeated it's leader, Johann Schmidt. Only to wake up from a coma, 70 years later.

Feel free to send me a message!! I'm nothing special, just a kid from Brooklyn.

His vehicle was hit by a bomb while he was fighting for your freedom. 

This is my Best Friend John. He was 19 years old. I know none of you probably care. But he left behind friends, a girlfriend; a family. He had so much life to live. And it was cut brutally short. 
All he wanted was to join the Army. And I want people to know that he made the ultimate sacrifice for your freedom. 
______________________________
Here is a little something to honor him. 
_____________________________ 

We’ll hear his tales no longer,
For ol’ John has passed away.
And the world’s a little poorer,
For a Soldier died today.

He won’t be mourned by many,
Just his family and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and had a family,
Going quietly on his way.
And the world won’t note his passing,
‘Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state.
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories,
From the time that they were young.
But the passing of a Soldier,
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution,
To the welfare of our land;
Some jerk who breaks his promise,
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow,
Who in times of war and strife;
Goes off to serve his country,
And offers up his life?

The politician’s stipend,
And the style in which he lives;
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives

While the ordinary Soldier,
Who offered up his all;
Is paid off with a medal,
And perhaps a pension, small.

It’s so easy to forget them,
For it is so many times;
That our Bobs and Jims and Johnnys,
Went to battle, but we know…

It is not the politicians,
With their compromise and ploys;
Who won for us the freedom,
That our country now enjoys

Just a common Soldier,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Soldier,
And his ranks are growing thin.
But his presence should remind us,
We may need his like again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Soldier’s part;
Is to clean up all the troubles,
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor,
While he’s here to hear the praise;
Then at least let’s give him homage,
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline,
In the paper that might say:
“OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,
A SOLDIER DIED TODAY.”

God bless you John. I’ll never stop missing you. I don’t know why you were taken from us so young. 

I guess Heaven was needing a hero.
