Thank you to our veterans that made it back, and to those who died for the freedom I enjoy. I honor you.

elancholy notes from "Taps" is played by a lone bugler.
loquently, the song pays tribute to those who were there.
en in uniform salute, tears running down their faces.
vercome with emotion, they silently remember.
emembering battles fought, recalling each friendship made.
ntimate with death, they learned painful lessons about life.
ll gave something, but some of them paid the ultimate price.
egions of heroes is who we are honoring today.

efenders of freedom,
vailable at a moment's notice...
es, I remember...and I am grateful.

The man,
with the gun in hand,
saves the land.
Not the no war,
afraid of a scar,
stay way afar,

A great piece. Thanks l&p G

The Man Who Saved Christmas by Jeff Ovall

Christmas - only days away; plastic snowmen and glowing reindeer adorn the lawns of neighborhoods all across America. All is calm, all is bright, and yet there is something tragic..
