USS Corry (DD-463)
  D-Day Flag Poem


When I look at her now
this flag called ol' glory,
I can't help but think
of the men of the Corry.

The blue of the ocean,
the stars from the sky,
the red for the blood shed

Some had to die.

The white stands for courage
and the freedom you brought.
We are all so thankful,
for that for which you fought.

She stood as a symbol
of your going home
to the loved ones you cherished
and those yet to come.

Now I raise this flag proudly,
and think of the brave.
For our Corry family,
long may she wave.
