In 'Breakfast of Champions" Kurt Vonnegut told of speaking with veterans who were in France when the Armistice was signed. When the guns fell silent, many men thought the silence was the voice of God. When I read that to my grandfather, he said that was exactly what it sounded like.
Nice choice of verse.
They shall not grow old as we grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
