Memories of lost lives, of service to country
Era’s past and present
Murder, mayhem, dictatorial reign
On foreign shores far from home
Readying for battle – recruits, drafted, enlisted, then
In the blink of an eye, lives forever changed
Leaving souls, earthly presence behind
Dying so that
Yearning to be free, remain free…
On this Memorial Day, 2019, we honor those who lost their lives in the name of freedom. We honor those who bravely served yesterday and serve today. Thank you for your selfless commitment to country and citizenry throughout the world.
