The Unsung Hero s


It does not matter! ! !
For every soldier living or dead
Is a hero in my head.
It doesn’t matter whether they was on the front lines
Fighting the war- or in the back lines working at S-4 (supplies)
They all contributed in some way
To keep our freedom safe from day to day.
The army, air force, navy, marines
In our battles they are seen.
Men, women, both alike fighting to keep us safe at night.
They joined the military so that our country could be free
And to protect you and me.
The medics who struggle to keep us alive
Not knowing if we’ll live or die.
From the cooks who supply us with the food we eat
Which may have been your neighbor from down the street?
Everyone had a job to do, and every one followed through.
You don’t have to be with a rifle in your hand
It doesn’t make you LESS of a woman or a man.
We are covering each other’s backs
Now tell me! ! What can be better than that!
So I honor all of them – for they are my brothers and sisters till the end.
“FREEDOM ISN’T FREE “

    This is a truly patriotic write. Written with all of the emotions described in all
    of its glorious words. Yes you are right freedom not only comes with those who have guns or
    rifles in their hands but also by those who are work behind the scenes in the kitchens, hospitals,
    barracks, command posts, peaceful protests or even rallying or praying for peace in our own
    back yards. Very inspiring Louis! I Invite you to read my poem Salute to Soldiers. (Report) Reply
