Contributor: David G. Bancroft || Poem Categories
Our Valiant Troopscountry as flag

So many thoughts and emotions are evoked,
when seeing young men and women,
standing at attention,
showing their loyalty and pride
in salute to Old Glory
that waves triumphantly above
as they listen intently
to our great country's anthem...

They are daughters, sons,
sisters, brothers, husbands, wives,
other loved ones and very dear friends...
They come from all walks of life and every state.
Even some do so for citizenship sake.

They are our valiant troops...
each performing their role
to keep the USA free,
and doing what it takes
for others in need.

They do so not for greed or political belief,
but to serve, honor, and protect,
knowing that the ultimate price might be paid,
followed by more tears
when solemn taps are played.

They deserve so much for what they do,
including being remembered as a veteran too...
And just imagine how you might make one feel
with a simple thank you for being there for us,
when seeing the uniform being worn.
