Veterans Day November 2006


The list is Royal
The names American
Their deeds Honorable
The sunset is nearer, than far
The sky is less blue
The mailbox is a trek
The cadence is not military anymore
Yet the heart beats pure
Red white and Blue
Here marches the CBS Honor Roll :

Isaias Rivera
Robert Pattison

CBS's Lord, let us never forget the tragic events that led to the death of two of CBSs finest employees. May their families find the peace in their hearts that strengthens their resolve? We ask Lord, that this treachery never again befalls anyone, anywhere that freedom lives. The six men killed on Sept 11 were:

WCBS/Ch.2 Isaias Rivera and Bob Pattison
WNBC/Ch.4 William Steckman
