I watched the flag pass by one day. It fluttered in the breeze.

 A young Marine saluted it, And then he stood at ease.

I looked at him in uniform; so young, so tall, so proud.

With hair cut square and eyes alert, he’d stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men like him had fallen through the years.

How many died on foreign soil; how many mothers’ tears?

How many pilots’ planes shot down? How many died at sea?

How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?

NO, FREEDOM ISN’T FREE !

I heard the sound of Taps one night, when everything was still.

I listened to the bugler play And felt a sudden chill. I wondered just how many times

That Taps had meant ‘Amen.’  When a flag had draped a coffin of a brother or a friend.

 I thought of all the children, of the mothers and the wives, of fathers, sons and husbands

With interrupted lives. I thought about a graveyard At the bottom of the sea.

Of unmarked graves in Arlington .

NO FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

Enjoy Your Freedom   and  God Bless Our Troops.

When you receive this,  please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our servicemen

Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best one.

     God Bless all!   mime-attachment
