We must never forget who
gets the credit for the freedoms we have,
of which we should be
eternally grateful.

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
.
