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.

Yes, this is very well done. Thanks for reposting.

I'm grabbing my hat and coat
I'm leaving the cat a note
Quick call me a ferry boat-getting out of town!

simple lines that speak volumes...liked this

like these two lines best:
they carry emotional scars
that haunt them everyday
such accurate depiction of the emotional lives of these veterans
