Answering The Call

David G. Bancroft, Founder of USA Patriotism!June 2016 -- "I wrote my poem, Answering The Call, in 2005 ... when America's troops were still heavily engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan with support for these valiant warriors still very strong by an overwhelming majority of their fellow Americans back home.

And while my youngest son (now a Marine veteran) returned home safely after serving in Iraq during 2003 (stop-loss deployment) ... my role as the founder of USA Patriotism! kept me very informed about our troops ongoing heroic efforts and the casualties too ... including fallen Army Sergeant First Class Paul Ray Smith becoming the first hero in the War On Terrorism to receive the Medal of Honor (posthumously) on April 4, 2005.

In fact, what President George W. Bush said at SFC Paul Smith's Medal of Honor ceremony ... started my thoughts for this poem ... finalizing it shortly before September 11, 2005.

Then reading the poem again in June 2016 with the mindset for many Americans much different then in 2005 for many reasons ... I decided to create the Answering The Call video with the narration from my poem ... along with music that should be dear to every American's heart ... all underscoring what Americans have always done since the birth of our beloved great country ... safeguarding Her and our priceless freedom!"  David G. Bancroft


Look around and you will see
so many reasons why
America remains strong and free,
as it has never been about "I",
but being united as "WE"
the People of the USA...
going forward every single day
doing what must be done
as a collective one
to keep Old Glory flying high
no matter the what, when, where, or why.

It is answering the call,
giving our national all,
doing the very best,
overcoming every test...
and never settling for anything less
than America's continued success.

And it has been so
in triumphing over every foe,
providing aid to others in another land,
and giving a helping hand
to our very own
whose lives have been thrown
in sad disarray
from mother nature's deadly play
or by a terrible manmade way.

Nor should there be any doubt
what Americans are all about,
as we are not ones that just shout...
but come forward and stand tall,
when answering the call!
