At Home Wiaves Old Glory Because of You


To all those who have fallen,
To all those who will fall.
To those who have served Her proudly,
To those who will proudly serve...
Freed0m, honor and peace be with you.

To the brotherhood that stood
And stands shoulder to shoulder still.
To all the blood, sweat, and tears you’ve spilled...
Freedom, honor and peace be with you.

To the horrors, terror and torture
you have seen and defeated.
To the ideas, government and God you believe in...
Freedom, honor and peace be with you.

To whatever you have fought for.
To the people you call your own.
May “Old Glory” wave high above our homes.
Thank you for serving with and for me,
Because America is what I proudly call home.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
