A Higher Service

There is an elite group of Americans amongst us.  Some of them be recognizable, but most continue humbly with their lives and their families.  Let's say something to them...

You've gone where THIS man cannot go,
willingly or not;
so I can go about my day,
YOU did the time and fought!
The time and place you factored not,
you signed up anyway--
no word or gift available
could meet deserved pay!

You went where THIS MAN could not go
due unto factors rare;
and you accomplished deeds of which
there's NOTHING to compare!
Combat, compassion or construction--
you obeyed the call;
for EVERY ONE of you involved,
know ye, we're grateful all!
And, now, they call you 'Veteran,'
a title you deserve;
not everyone be brave enough
to enlist and serve
or even answer to a 'draft'
when the time arose.
You are far more than 'average,'
for you are seasoned 'pros!'

Thank you, once more, veterans,
for all that you have done.
We pray for what you yet endure,
it can be far from 'fun!'

Yes, to ANYONE who has served this great country, THANK YOU SO MUCH!  You are appreciated and prayed for by many, including this writer.  God bless you, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
