I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine saluted it, 

And then he stood at ease. 

I looked at him in uniform;
so young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert,
he’d stand out in any crowd.

 I thought how many men like him

had fallen through the years.


How many died on foreign soil; 

how many mothers’ tears?

How many pilots’ planes shot down?

How many died at sea?


How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?


NO, FREEDOM ISN’T FREE!

I heard the sound of Taps one night, when everything was still.

I listened to the bugler play

And felt a sudden chill. 

I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant ‘Amen.’
When a flag had draped a coffin
of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children,
of the mothers and the wives,
of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.

mime-attachment (11)I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea.

Of unmarked graves in   Arlington .
NO FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

Enjoy Your Freedom   and 
God Bless Our Troops

When you receive this, please stop for a moment

and say a prayer for our servicemen

Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier,

prayer is the very best one.

      God Bless all!
