What is Memorial Day?? For most, it is simply 3 days off work. For others, it’s a lot of savings at stores nationwide. But for most of US, it’s a day to remember our fallen troops that have fought in battles WORLDWIDE.
Having grown up a “Navy Brat“, and having served myself(Combat Engineer,US Army,Deployed OIF 16th ENGR.BN.) I can assure you I am well aware of the sacrifices made by both the service men and women,and their families. We owe the very freedoms we all to often take for granted,our very way of life, to these Brave Men & Women.
The Soldiers Life
A soldier must be willing to give his all
He is overworked and underpaid
A truer patriot was never made
Ready to go at any timeWherever there is trouble or the first sign
His courage and honor are unsurpassed
Ready and willing to complete the task
Travelling to lands both near and far
He stands his post and looks at the stars
Wondering what he might have done
If he had not chosen to carry a gun
Remember the next time that you are driving by
And see the flag flying proud and high
That somewhere out there a soldier stands
Weary and cold in a foreign land
Protecting our country from our foes
Standing tall and proud come rain or snow.
They sign away their freedoms to protect ours.
Do Not let their sacrifices be in vain.
