In honor of our service people I would like to post a poem I wrote a few years ago.


We’re living in a land that’s free
We come and go at will
With little thought of why we can
Too much for granted, still

There are those who chose to do the task
To keep us safe at home
Fighting on some distant soil
Where-ever the need they roam

They put their Country first
And beckoned to the call
Some would live to come back home
While others sure to fall

Perhaps we should take the time
While we’re living yet
You and me, thank God we’re free
And also thank a vet
