You Make Us Proud
(For our troops)

So very far away from home
Half a world away
Our support and prayers go out to you
Each and every day

You fight the fight for freedom
And you do your country proud
As you liberate a county
In which freedoms not allowed

For you Old Glory’s waving
This country’s proud as we can be
We thank you all, for it is men
Like you that made her free

Jack Roberts – March 25, 2003


I was talking to a friend of mine last night.
She heard from her son in the middle east,
and he talked about how discouraging
the news he hears from home is.
This poem will be sent to him.

Liked the sentiment to the lines... Of course, you wrote this circa 2003... I was reading and the last two line caught me... "We thank you all, for men and women like you that made liberty"... Thanks for sharing...

They are our best, aren't they, and I can't bear that any of them would think for one moment that we feel anything less than that for them. Lovely tribute, Jack.

Thank you, Jack, it certainly must be discouraging to see people protesting continuously, you are a good man. :)

Excellent poem. My prayers and respect go out to those brave people who are fighting for freedom. My own country's commitment is a source of shame to me. Protesters who act our in civil disobedence are also a shame to our country.

I couldn't have said it any better Jack,

"You fight the fight for freedom
And you do your country proud
As you liberate a county
In which freedoms not allowed"

Excellent poem and make sure when you send it to that soldier you include all your reviews so he can see that other people agree with you. We are all proud of our men and women fighting for freedom.

This is a wonderful tribute, Jack.
My heart is breaking for those men and women.

Jack, they do make us so proud. Young as they are going forward to fight and die for their country. And all we can do is give them support and love and pray for them. How can Americans protest while they are dying for us? Protesting will not stop the war until it is ready to end. There must be other ways to help our service personnel.
How many hearts will have to break before the war is over. We all want it to stop.
But they believe in their cause and are fighting and dying for it. God love them.

Oh make me so very proud to know you. You are one in a zillion.
