From "The War" by Ken Burns.

Text: "For his extraordinary courage and leadership displayed in the days following June 6th, 1944, Staff Sergeant Walter Ehlers was given the Medal of Honor, his country's highest award for valor."

Lyrics: "Each generation from the plains to distant shore / With the gifts they were given were determined to leave more / Battles fought together, acts of conscience fought alone / These are the seeds from which America has grown / Let them say of me I was one who believed / In sharing the blessings that I received / Let me know in my heart when my days are through / America, America, I gave my best to you / America, I gave my best to you."
