We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have,  of which we should be eternally grateful.

I watched the flag pass by one day.  
It fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine saluted it,  
And then he stood at ease. 
 
I looked at him in uniform; 
so young, so tall, so proud. 
With hair cut square and eyes alert, 
he'd stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men like him  
had fallen through the years. 
How many died on foreign soil; 

    how many mothers' tears? 

    getPart?uid=31827982&partId=11&scope=STA

How many pilots' planes shot down?  
How many died at sea? 
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves? 
NO, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE!

I heard the sound of Taps one night,  
when everything was still. 
I listened to the bugler play 
And felt a sudden chill. 
 
     
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant 'Amen.'
When a flag had draped a coffin 
 
of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children,  
of the mothers and the wives, 
of fathers, sons and husbands 
With interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard 
At the bottom of the sea.       
Of unmarked graves in Arlington   
NO FREEDOM ISN'T FREE

Enjoy Your Freedom and   
God Bless Our Troops.
 
When you read this,   please stop for a moment   
and say a prayer for our servicemen and women
....and their loved ones.
     
 
Of all the gifts you could give a  
U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best one. 
      God Bless all!
