Poet’s Nook

Memorial Day Salute

They’ve fought in all of Earth’s terrains – 

in deserts, jungles, snow and rain.

They answered the call unselfishly:

“protect our homeland, keep us free!”

Some tours were brief; some lasted years.

They ran to danger, swallowed fears. 

In different lands they proudly served.

A hero’s honor they deserve.

They stand the tallest of the tall.

Kneel today for those who gave all.
