The American Soldier

This patriot runs true, their will as forged steel;

Each job familiar as breath, their fate both present and real.

The blood that pumps life, the liquid that churns;

     Must not fail their duty, will not neglect their yearns.

For Love of country they dedicate their lives, to guard and to serve, each heart strives;

To challenge all foes, to protect YOUR life; to preserve YOUR freedoms, no matter what strife.

Boots on the ground, thunder in the air, nightmare at sea, razor-sharp skills will defend anywhere;

Mentally, physically, emotionally ready, the American Soldier will die fighting unwavering and steady.

And do this, they do, 24 upon 7, they risk the ultimate, many indeed are in heaven;

Their memories emblazoned for eternity of time and remembered by brethren.

Humble thy be to honor and pray, plead for mercy every night like today;

That this Soldier is blessed and comes home safely to stay.

Their mission you see is above you and me;

Their heart sings, “My Country Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty”.

    • Thank you sir. I honor our military and each soldier individually for their sacrifices, small and large. I recognize and thank them for the protection they provide to America and Americans. My stomach turns as I see how these soldiers are being used as pawns and irreverently placed in harms way to further politics and positioning. Thank you again for your words. I sincerely appreciate them.
