Medal of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer and Astronaut Neil ArmstrongThe words to my poem, "Our Heroes, America's Best" ... came to me one day in 2003 ... as my youngest son was involved with combat operations in Iraq with the 1st Division, 5th Regiment Marines. My son being in harm's way with the constant worrying being reinforced by the 24/7 news coverage ... provided personal experience of the extreme pride for a loved one doing a valiant act for our great nation ... on the battlefield, in the homeland, elsewhere, and beyond ... while accepting what the cost to self might be.

Then in 2014 ... the "Our Heroes, America's Best" video was created to illustrate my poem's intent... honoring the valiant patriots who have gone above and beyond the call of duty on behalf of our beloved USA since Her noble birth!

USA FlagOur Heroes, America's Best

They come from all walks of life,
Never seeking tribute for doing what was thought right,
Just going forward regardless the danger's rife,
Knowing that ultimate fate could come any day or night.

These are the ones who came to sow,
Seeds of freedom, liberty, justice and more,
To a new land many years ago,
That became what all who declared and fought for.

These are the ones who bled,
In the wars against tyranny,
Leaving the battlefields stained red,
Oh, so young and many.

These are the ones who protect,
From fire, disaster, and the lawless,
Going wherever to detect,
Keeping our country safe from duress.

These are the ones who explore,
Beyond earth's reach,
Into the stars they soar,
Allowing our dreams to go beyond the breach.

All are what make our country proud,
Passing the honor, duty, and courage test,
Making it easy to praise them loud,
As they are our heroes, America's best!
