Yes, our men are free
because of the brave,
sacrificing all they have
built up, in their days.
Yet they never turn back
to consider surrender;
therefore, we must give up
our thanks to the splendor.

No, not all heroes,
not most, wear capes,
they are in formation
saving us by grace.
A mindset of courtesy,
of joy, of glee,
as they head into battle
defending our Land of the Free.

Maybe, four years
could go by much faster;
yet, I must not be selfish, for
they are saving from disaster.
And once they return
from across the sea,
I must rejoice, for our brave
continue to set our country free.

As my father was in the Navy, and my best friend was just sent off to boot camp, I dedicate this poem to all of our wonderful military men and women.
