<em>Edit Blog entry</em> Words and Music Express Gratitude

In honor of National Poetry Month OCC Archives is highlighting a piece of music written by Professor Emeritus Donald B. Miller. The connection between music and poetry is a natural one considering that both use rhythm, rhyme, and flow to tell a story or to express a message. In Professor Miller’s case that story is one of gratitude, and the words he so beautifully set to music convey the depth of our collective national appreciation for those members of the U.S. armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice and remain posthumously unidentified.
