New Poem Spotlight



When Uncle Sam said, "I want you" they answered their country's call

Left their homes and families and vowed to give their all

They fought battles and won victories and came home from the war

With some wounds you couldn't see and put their medals in a drawer

They thought of buddies they had lost and were haunted by those scenes

That inhabited their memories and frequented their dreams

But they got jobs and raised families while their stories stayed untold

They were your neighbor or repairman, someone just down the road

Let us thank God for their sacrifice each time we unfurl our flag

You won't hear them boast about it, ‘cause real heroes, they don't brag
