These are poems I have written for my soldier, for yours. For all our men and women, who are making sacrifices for our country and other countries. For those who have died ,mothers, fathers,brothers,sisters, sons, daughters. We are all in this together. Because we love them ,honor them. Because our blood races in our veins, and our hearts . When they are away, with anxiety we wait at home with hopes of there return. Fears that we may never see them again . For those who have come home broken, incomplete, shaken. For our veterans who relive what they have seen, over and over again in there minds ,there bodies. These are our troops, our blood, United States of America at their best..............God Bless Your Soldier and Mine.
