Happy Veterans' Day - For All That Served..

Recommended Posts

I sing of arms and of the men and women,
Who forced by fate, Set sail to distant shores, And faraway places, With strange sounding names.
Who are seldom the sons and daughters, Of the makers of our military missions.
Who, in our name, straddle the earth, Like a postmodern virtual colossus, Bringing death and destruction, To distant enemies seen or presumed.
Who try to be all that they can be, And hope that it is enough.
Who are self-selected, And not always eager participants, In making the world safe, For free trade and constitutional democracy.

For without them, How could we extend our American Empire.
And without them, How could we offer the world, Peace in our time, And on our terms.
