Poem: Remembered

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Their names
Not all individually known
But their sacrifice to protect and to serve our country is

Their hands
Not often shook
By we who sought to thank them
For their dedication to us whom they all knew not

Those Soldiers
And selfless

Who everyday faced
Eye to eye
On battlefields

Who for extended lengths of time been
Away from home
Where safety
Once tightly held them

They who through acts of courage
Unselfishly gave of themselves
To execute a mission
Most of us would not have done

They who hoped
To return home
But never got the chance to see
The sun rise again

We remember you
We honor you
We praise you

On this day
And those after
And before
