Honoring Modern Day Warriors; Our Military, Our Veterans

God Bless America, Land that I Love, Stand beside her and guide her, thru the night, with a Light from above...

Honoring Veterans

Honoring Veterans

For You

Honoring Heroes

A few years back, I wrote a poem honoring the fallen, those lost in warfare, those who answered the call to go --- never making it back home again!

Memorial Day is the day set aside to honor them, the fallen!

I have immense respect for those willing to put their lives on the line; defending this Country, defending us, defending our freedom and so, I dedicate this poem to all Veterans and to all active Military.

Although any words that I or anyone else can come up with, fall short and could never measure up to such sacrifice!

Thank you all; you all are a special breed and I believe, called for this.

Our heroes, Modern Day Warriors:

Modern Day Warriors

Modern Day Warriors

Modern Day Warriors

Modern day warriors, out there, putting in the time

Understanding, when so many others don’t, just what it is - that is on the line

You protect and defend, all that we hold dear

Because you do, we go forward with our day, not looking over our shoulder, not living in fear

Thank you, you are valued and treasured far more than you know

Whether serving today, or in the past,; as you wait for it to be your turn to go

Protecting our fought-for liberty; out there seeing to it that free we shall remain and be

Unselfishly sacrificing, insuring that future generations, will also continue to live free

It is with grateful hearts, when we say, Thank You, each and every Veteran’s Day

We can’t all put it on the line as you all do, but we can support and we can Pray

It must be unsettling at times, when so much of your time, is spent away

Yet you go, time and again, packed up in an instant, with more goodbyes and then, on your way

Time away from family, missing births, special occasions…the small town football game

You may not ask for any recognition, but it is freely given, just the same

You are our modern day heroes, you all are putting in the time

You are our modern day warriors, out there, putting it all on the line

The most modest and selfless among us, the most generous of all mankind

No greater gift than those willing to lay down their lives, no greater individuals will you ever find

Be safe while out there, as you put in the time

Thanks to all who have, who are, who will soon be, protecting that precious freedom line

Thank you!
