A TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO SERVE
The men and women who serve
In the military
Deserve our respect and thanks.
They give up "normal" lives
To protect us,
And keep us out of harm's way.
Whatever branch they choose,
The Army, Navy or Marines,
They guard the U.S. shores and interior.
They also fight on foreign soil,
Far from home,
Keeping the enemy from our land.
They secure our country's freedom,
Sometimes at the cost
Of their own lives.
Remember them Memorial Day
And say a prayer
For their safety as they serve.
Mary S. Palmer
Five members of my family served in the military, some during wars. Fortunately, they arrived home intact. They gave up some of the best years of their lives to protect our freedom in the United States of America. I honor them and thank them. I also salute all who have served in the past and those who are serving in these trying times. May God bless them and keep them safe.
