Just A Common Soldier, also known as A Soldier Died Today, is one of the most popular poems on the Internet. Written and published in 1987 by Canadian veteran and columnist A. Lawrence Vaincourt, it now appears in numerous anthologies and on July 4, 2008 it was carved into a marble monument at West Point, New York. This year marks the poem’s 27th anniversary.
