The nation honors its veterans once a year.

 

On Memorial Day
 
It’s not much.
Just a simple white marble marker.
Stark white with a small flag
Stars and Stripes
Waving with the breeze.
The marker is straight
Standing at attention.
A final salute to the
Veteran
Sleeping below.
 
Each veteran
Male or female
Earned the privilege
Serving the country they loved.
In times of peril
In times of peace
A country called.
They answered
And now respose
In honor
 
The country thanks them
For their service
Once a year
On Memorial Day
 
Richard Oldenburg
Sgt. USMC
