THOSE WHO MAKE US PROUD
(A tribute to our veterans)
They do it because they care,
The most unselfish act of all.
With no hesitation, and no regrets,
They always answer the call.
They know it won't be easy,
And gets harder day by day.
Yet continue with their efforts,
They do so without delay.
Away from friends and family,
Working deeply into night.
Their work is never ending,
Never willing to lose the fight.
The days and nights get longer,
And pain and exhaustion sets in.
They somehow summon strength,
To them, it comes from within.
Willing to do whatever it takes,
Until the very end.
Our prayers go to them nightly,
For on those we do depend.
God bless the brave men and women in the U.S. Military. They are our pride...
