A flag draped coffin
carries the soul of a
warrior, who laid
down his life for
his country

The ultimate sacrifice
of body and mind
he served his nation
with pride and honor
defending her to the end

There are no words
that can be spoken,
as a mother weeps
and a child cries…
those he leaves behind with memories of

A man who loved his country
A husband who loved his wife
A father who loved his children
A son & brother who loved his family
A being who loved us all

This weekend, we honor the men and women of the Armed Forces, who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can continue our lives knowing the freedoms we are truly blessed with.  To them I say Thank You….
