I Am The One
By David G. Bancroft, USA Patriotism! Founder/Owner

I am the one,
who was there in the fight that won
the United States of America the right to be
the land of the free and voice of liberty.

I am the one,
who does what must be done
to save and protect
what we all hold dear and respect.

I am the one,
who doesn't run
when faced with an enemy's gun,
always there, standing tall
in response to my cherished nation's call.

I am the one,
whose life was undone,
while doing my very best
for you and all the rest
during a noble quest.

I am the one,
who is a daughter, son,
or another loved one,
proudly serving the USA
every single day
in the Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Army 
with it never being about me...
but out of love for my great country!

Author's Note:

I wrote "I Am The One" in 2005 during the intense combat period of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars ... and not too long after my youngest son, a decorated Marine Corps Iraq War veteran, returned home when his active duty tenure was over. (Its illustrated video with my narration was created in 2021.)

"I Am The One" ... is a heartfelt tribute honoring the men and women who have proudly served with valor in the U.S. military from the Revolutionary War through today with many paying the ultimate sacrifice and sustaining wounds of varying severity.

Hopefully, it will remind all who experience "I Am The One" that ... those serving and who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces ... do so like brothers and sisters ... having each others' back ... no matter the threat ... through out our beloved nation's history.

Nor would there be a USA today, if this brotherhood/sisterhood bond wasn't so during World War II ... regardless of what some might want to change ... what actually occurred historically.
