Freedom

The anchor of our country
fought for us by the brave.
The brave that marched
in distant lands away from family.
The honor to bestow to them
is far more than gratitude.
They walked the enemy lines,
they felt fear inside prison walls,
they saw blood, pain, and death,
they carry emotional scars
that haunt them everyday.
They stood up for our country,
now it's time for us to stand for them.
All dignity and honor
I proudly salute to you this day,
our brave sons, and daughters
of the United States Of America.

Spoken like a true American. I can assure you every soldier in the Armed Forces appreciates you and your words.
