In Your Honor unselfishly, you left your children and your family, You left behind your sisters and your brothers. Leaving your beloved children and wife, You put on hold, your dreams-your life. On foreign soil, you found yourself planted To fight for those whose freedom you granted. Without your sacrifice, their cause would be lost But you carried onward, no matter the cost. Many horrors you had endured and seen. Many faces had haunted your dreams. You cheered as your enemies littered the ground; You cried as your brothers fell all around. When it was over, you came back home, You were left with memories to face all alone; You found yourself in the company of friends As their crosses cast shadows across the land. You survived and were forever scarred Emotionally, physically, permanently marred. Those who did not now sleep eternally 'Neath the ground they had given their lives to keep free. With a hand upon my heart, I feel the pride and respect; my reverence is revealed in the tears that now stream down my upturned face As our flag waves above you, in her glory and grace. Freedom was the gift that you unselfishly gave Pain and death was the price that you ultimately paid. Every day, I give my utmost admiration To you dad that fought to defend our nation.

Having just recently connected with my cousin April 2017. Was so saddened to hear of his passing. Glad we had that time. As we both have aged, we also laughed when I told he looks like his dad and he said you look like your mom! Thank you for your service and sacrifice. Rest in peace!
