Mission seven: Mission Complete
I just returned to the home base.
This tour of duty will soon be through.
I brush my teeth and wash my face.
The captain assigned another job to do.
Quickly, I grabbed my gear off my bed.
Tonight on a rescue mission, I am sent.
I place my helmet on my head.
I walked out the door of my tent.
In my gear, my orders I find.
I was given a map to the place.
I was given stuff to cover my behind.
Then, I saw the picture of his face.
My face went quickly went to a frown.
This person was not a stranger, you see.
Thump, my backpack hits the ground.
He is an U. S. Army Ranger, like me.
To my assignment, I ran.
I must get this job done.
I sling my pack on, again.
I will to die to save this one.
