A tribute to those who given their all to keep us free.


In recognition of our heroes who have fought and died for us on foreign soil.

To those of World War 1, which has only been a history lesson for me, you fought to make the world a safer place.

Soldiers of World War II,

I salute.

You fought in other countries,

for a free world.

Korean Veterans, thank you. for fighting in a war that is largely forgotten, unless a loved one fell there.

Men and Women, who served in Viet Nam,

I respect and honor your contribution.

You stayed the course,

even knowing you would be spit on,

and called baby killer'

when you returned home.

Thank you for doing the job

you were asked to do.

To those who are serving,

and dying in the middle East,

I send you my prayers.

You are volunteers who have

largely left homes, families

and jobs to be in the midst

of a "Storm."

You are doing the right thing,

despite what the media say.

Serve with honor and dignity,

as did the ones that went before you.

Thank you to all veterans and our current military men and women who are serving with pride, all over the world.

This is a sad commentary on the state of our world; how little we have evolved that we still have wars. This is a fine tribute, Sherri. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,

Sherri,

As the daughter, sister, niece of a Veteran, and a Veteran myself, I thank you for this moving tribute. Too many are dead set against our men and women in uniform, who stepped in the boots others wouldn't dream of wearing. Well done, this is a keeper!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I salute you, Poet!
