    With gratitude, these Salutes to the Soldier
    Wet eyes and a lump, bigger than any boulder

    Well done, is too little a thought, my compatriot 
    ​Pale, and vacuous, beside your deeds that radiate​

    Least that I can do is doff my hat and pray for thee
    The Lord above 'proves your feats and sets you free

    Oh! that I could emulate your deeds of conviction
    To do what's to be done without fear or approbation

    Rest in peace, heave easy Soldier, my friend
    You've earned your pips many times around!

    e soldier stood and faced God,
    which must always come to pass.
    He hoped his shoes were shining,
    Just as brightly as his brass.

    'Step forward now, you soldier,
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To My Church have you been true?'

    The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
    'No, Lord, I guess I isn’t.
    Because those of us who carry guns,
    Can't always be a saint.

    I've had to work most Sundays,
    And at times my talk was tough.
    And sometimes I've been violent,
    Because the world is awfully rough.

    But, I never took a penny,
    That wasn't mine to keep...
    Though I worked a lot of overtime,
    When the bills got just too steep.

    And I never passed a cry for help,
    Though at times I shook with fear.
    And sometimes, God, forgive me,
    I've wept unmanly tears.

    I know I don't deserve a place,
    Among the people here.
    They never wanted me around,
    Except to calm their fears.

    If you've a place for me here, Lord,
    It needn't be so grand.
    I never expected or had too much,
    But if you don't, I'll understand.

    There was a silence all around the throne,
    Where the saints had often trod.
    As the soldier waited quietly,
    For the judgment of his God.

    'Step forward now, you soldier,
    You've borne your burdens well.
    Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
    You've done your time in Hell.'

    Don't Break This - Without Apology

    Thinking of all the soldiers of the free world.

    I'm not breaking this one. If I get it a 1000 times, I'll forward it a 1000 times! Let us pray



    A Prayer chain for our military... Don't break it!

    Send this on after a short prayer for our soldiers - Please Don't break it!

    It's the Military, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It's the Military, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It's the Military, not the politicians that ensures our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It's the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

    If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women who have served and are currently serving our country and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. Warm regards,
