A Soldier

Soldier—What a noble name!
Worn by many with historic fame.
Whether Army, or Navy, whichever you choose,
Never your pride should you lose.

Perhaps Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard it be,
Stand tall and ridicule always flee!
To serve this nation wherever you are sent,
To complete the mission, all energy spent.

To return home knowing you have done your best,
Is to have passed the ultimate test.
To know others can live free because you served,
Is a badge won, and well deserved!

Though many may not understand,
There are duties that go with living in this land.
To be willing to go and the uniform wear,
Is an honor that many through the ages will share.
