Freedom’s Song: Veteran’s Day, 2014

Duty Called

P1170513

Walking wounded now

Scars left to find a mending

Our flag now flys free

Beauty.  Red, White, Blue

Stars, to light a path anew

Remembering all

The fighting warriors

Born, so all may know the song

“Freedom Hails!” ’tis true

 Sing loudly, stand tall!

Glorious is our journey

Till this journey ends

Shout its pledge aloud

Triumph wins where love abounds

For Gods love is true

Believe in freedom

Not for one, but every soul

Peace is ours to build.

  1. I’m so glad I discovered this post today. Many thanks.

  2. Thanks for your visit, Ann. I’m so proud for all who have served this great Nation.

  3. This is a lovely tribute to the courage of our defenders.

    • There is no way to ever thank them enough. The harsh living conditions, the MRE’s, and the ever present dangers. And even more heartbreaking, the disrespect our Government shows by the lack of proper medical facilities for our injured warriors.

      P.S. Did you catch my last statement, NSA? Deliver it to the appropriate channels. Perhaps they will rise to the occasion and walk on hot coals, climb barbed wire fences, jump a few hoops and rise to the occasion.
