A Heartfelt Tribute

For all the men, and women, serving their country, in a far, away land. A few heart felt words come to mind, with new meaning. Honor For the job you do, valiantly, each and every day. Pride For defending our flag, old Red, White, and Blue. Heroes For giving so unselfishly, without a doubt, never once thinking of themselves. Soldiers Shoulder to shoulder, upon the sand. you show our strength. In numbers, united as one. We shall stand. Freedom It’s a very high price, they pay, to defend our God given right, to live free. Thank you The word thank you, seems yet so small, and never can, quite compare, to all the things, you’ve given, or for sacrifices made. Yet, from our hearts, Across the miles, and sent from home we send our love, and prayers, to each and every one of you. Written by: Carla F. Cox
