Eighteen years old, and off to war

Hearing stories of blood and gore

12 weeks training, then into the throes

Are we ever really ready, who knows

*

Family and friends waiting back home

Concerned that we are all alone

Nervous and unsure, we find a friend

To watch over each other’s rear end

*

Focusing on the task at hand

Survival, we all understand

Bonding to become a team

Each person sharing a dream

*

Do your job, watch your back

Pull your weight, never slack

Show good spirit, tell a joke

Give friends a soothing stroke

*

Make the best of it you can

Comfort each and every man

You’re never really all alone

Love and honor is often shown

*

It does not take long to learn

That everyone will not return

War will always claim its toll

With the dead, and not quite whole

*

Your thoughts and prayers from home

Comfort soldiers to feel less alone

Remember the ones who died

With loving memories and pride

 

************

My heart goes out to all the veterans and families of veterans,

May the world always remember the sacrifices these people made.
