Just A Common Soldier, also known as A Soldier Died Today, is a tribute to the soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen who have given so much for their country. The poem was written and published in 1987 by Canadian veteran and columnist A. Lawrence Vaincourt. On July 4, 2008, it was carved into a marble monument at West Point, New York.
