United we Stand, Divided we Fall
by Frederick Douglass Grimes, III
A veteran is a veteran,
No matter which branch they serve.
Fighting for your country,
Boy! That takes some nerve.
Men and women take the oath
To serve their country well,
Leaving behind families.
The hardships only they can tell.
With one thought in mind: To complete their mission.
Come home safe.
The training and experience
For years to come would serve them well.
Countless soldiers have given their lives
To protect us, one and all.
Let us hope and pray
That not one more soldier will ever have to fall!
God bless America!
–The Blind Poet, Freddy G.
