IN HONOR OF ALL OUR VETERANS

Post by Katie » Sun Nov 11, 2012 6:05 am

I stood there Proudly
Tears on my face
A lump in my chest
My hand on my heart
A sea of white stars
Lost in a sea of blue
Red and white stripes blowing strong in the breeze
Grasping his hand
His handshake
Strong
Proud
Unwavering
America's Veteran
The Pride of this Beloved Country
I felt their strength in my hand
And my chest swelled with Pride
I was humbled by their touch
And I wondered if I could ever say
Thank You strongly enough
For him or her to ever know
How deeply my words went
Those brave men and women
Made the choice to
Pick up a weapon
Stare the enemy in the face
Endure a hell that civilians
Could never understand
And Fight for Me
They fought
For their loved ones
OUR America
OUR Flag
OUR well being
OUR Rights as Americans
And yet they never even knew me
America's Veteran
As I stood there Proudly
Tears on my face
My hand on my heart
Their hand in mine
I felt a love
Like no other
And I choked back the tears
Whispered a humble Thank You
For those who mean so much
America's Veteran
You are what makes this Country Great
And as the Flag flies Proudly in the breeze
I close my eyes
Touch my hand to my heart
And ask God to Bless you
My love will never falter
Your Gift will never be forgotten
God Bless You ALL

Dear Katie.,
As a Vietnam Veteran, I would like to say thank you so,so much for this lovely blessed write you did here in the forum.
I thank you and I am sure many other Veterans would be proud to read this touching write of yours.

KATIE...JUST AN AWESOME WRITE, GIRL. I THINK YOUR TIME WITH SOLDIER'S ANGELS HAS GIVEN YOU A DEPTH OF FEELING FOR THEM THAT NOT A LOT CAN UNDERSTAND...AS YOU POINT OUT IN YOUR WRITE. HOW LUCKY THEY ARE TO HAVE YOU, ALONG WITH OTHER ANGELS TOO. THANKS FOR SHARING THIS HERE FOR ALL TO READ...GOD BLESS YOU FOR THE PERSON YOU ARE AND FOR WHAT YOU DO FOR OUR SERVICE PERSONNEL. I KNOW YOU WILL DENY IT, BUT YES, YOU ARE AN ANGEL, TOO...

LOVE ALWAYS...LINDA :wink:
Always be kind and fair; it all comes back to you in time ! Image

I read this first when you posted it on Facebook, Katie. It brought tears then. It is more than a beautiful poem. It is magnificent.
There are no greater words to describe it that comes to my mind. Thank you, is not enough.

Love and Hugs, Jan ))(( )))(((

To ALL the wonderfully touching people that commented on this poem I just want to say a very humbled thank you for all your kind words !!! Some of you know that I am affiliated with an organization called Soldier's Angels and correspond with 70 plus Defenders of Freedom currently fighting in Afghanistan. When I wrote this poem I did it with tears in my eyes because of the deep love I feel for ALL ourTroops, both serving presently and those who have since retired. Then I came back to Hugs to see if anyone read my poem and found myself in tears again just from reading your kind remarks. Thank You !!! I deeply love our Military, as well as Our Precious America !!! Without all these brave men and women did and do for us everyday we wouldn't have the Freedom we do. There are no words strong enough !!!

B.J. A VERY special and heartfelt Thank You for Your Service, and for all your kind words !!! You have been in my Prayers and will continue to be always !!! I have more Military poetry if you would ever care to read it, and I am always glad for a good chat. i'd be honored to know you !!! Be Blessed !!!

TO ALL OUR VETERANS AND TROOPS BOTH HERE AND OVERSEAS !!! BE BLESSED !!!! GOD IS WITH YOU ALL !!!
