Thank you for your service
I wrote this poem “The Proud” several years ago. I would like to share it with your readers for all the service men and women and their families. They are not forgotten.
To see Ole Glory as she is raised up on the morning sun
Another battle she was won
Her stripes may they ever flow
Of Her ever unity the world to show.
She has flown over many young women and men
Some may be your next of kin
For our troops who with courage fought
For the freedom of our neighbors sought
As she flies across the blue sky
If any one is proud it is I
America the beautiful and the grand.
I salute our troops as they stand
They served our country well and true.
To defend their freedom, mine and yours too.
