Ira Hayes...In remembrance of September 11, 2001
As firemen from the rubble
"Old Glory" proudly raised
A spirit hand reached out to them
The hand...of Ira Hayes

"Old Glory" rising ...deja
' vu
That dark September day
For Ira...it was 1945
Time would melt away

An island...strewn with bodies
Country and The Corps
The pain...the fear...the dying
He'd seen it all before

Ascending Suribachi
The slaughter on that hill
Heroes who would perish
Marines whose hearts were still

Brave men slain in battle

The thousands that they  saved  
Iwo Jima...Terror's Towers
Long may "Old Glory" wave

The ghost of Ira whispered
"True heroes rest below
The dust, steel and ashes
Brave men...at Ground Zero

One day in dark September
From the rubble...firemen raised
The Star Spangled Banner
And the ghost...of Ira Hayes.
Firemen raise the flag after the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center.
