Dear Sir Please could you print this poem in honour of all the brave Soldiers, especially my Nephew Leigh Dennis (Engineers):
There is discipline in A Soldier you can see it when he walks,
There is Honour in A Soldier you hear it when he talks,
There is Courage in A Soldier you can see it in his eyes,
There is loyalty in A Soldier that he will not compromise,
There is something in A Soldier that makes him stand apart,
There is strength in A Soldier that beats in his heart,
A Soldier isn't a title any man can be hired to do,
A Soldier is the soul of that Man buried deep inside of you,
A Soldier's job isn't finished after an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week,
A Soldier is always A Soldier even when he sleeps,
A Soldier serves his country first and the life he's left behind,
A Soldier has to sacrifice what comes first in a civilians mind,
If you are a civilian - I'm saying this to you,
Next time you see A Soldier remember what they do,
A Soldier is the reason our land is Home of the free,
A Soldier is the one that is brave protecting you and me,
If you are A Soldier I'm saying this to you,
THANK GOD FOR EVERY SOLDIER, THANK GOD FOR WHAT YOU DO.
A sentiment, echoing through the ages.
It is the soldier who salutes the flag
and is buried with the flag
GIVES you the right to burn the flag.
Thank You, come home safe
