A Small Service Big Job - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black
~~~~*Dedicated to the United States Coast Guard*~~~~
Brave members on a shore kept free
Who man the fleets in war and peace
And guard the shores of Liberty
To keep a freedom that will never cease
From North, South, East to West
Come the rescuers of lives at sea
Whom the war on smugglers shall wrest'd
To keep our good land safe and free
As liberty tolls, two centuries span
Though small in size this service be
As one small part of Hamilton's plan
Guards the coasts of Liberty.
I'm a coastie's wife and proud of it.My husband served his country for 26 years following in his father's footsteps.My son is now active duty.
