On this Memorial Day, let us not forget all of the brave men and women who gave their lives in order for us to maintain our freedoms. Their ultimate sacrifice reminds each and everyone of us that because of these war heroes, we are able to live in the “home of the brave, and the land of the free.” God bless them all. Below are excerpts from a poem which pays homage to our fallen heroes.

A Tribute To Veterans
by Jerry Calow
In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers
In Our Minds For All Time

INTERLUDE:
GOLD STAR MOTHERS GRIEVE: ENDLESSLY,
ENDLESSLY, ENDLESSLY…….

These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds
They’re Our Husbands, Fathers, and Sons
They Enlisted For the Duty at Hand
To Serve the Cause of Country and Land:
They Had Honor, They Had Valor,
They Found Glory That Change Them Forever

Men Standing Tall and Proud They be

A Country Behind Them in a Solemn Sea

So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly

Unfurled in Their Majesty High:

In the Sun, In the Rain
In the Winds Across This Land

Years of Tears Has Brought Us Here
Gathering Around to Hear This Sound
So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly
Unfurled in Their Majesty High: In the Sun, In the Rain, In the Winds Across This Land
REPEAT: In the Sun, In the Rain, In the Winds For All Time.
