  • Thank you Samuel John Collins for your service to our Country,

    Poem by Laurence Binyon.
    Poem for the Fallen.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.

    LEST WE FORGET
