An impressive piece fit for all times. Well done and thank you.
U.S. Navy by the way.

When off to battle men they march
their weapons close at hand
the cadence of their marching feet
enough to shake the land
Above them flies the colors proud
device of those they serve
they stride along, their heads unbowed
with steely heart and nerve
But when the skirmish rages on
blood turns the earth to mire
and warriors' strength is nearly gone
the situation dire
Flags will not restore his strength
Nor leaders or their lack
What helps him through the battle's length?
Tis the 'brother' at his back
Each man, he loves his wife and babes
his country, lord and liege
But oft his thoughts of these will fade
When courage is beseiged
For when he's at his last reserves
and must continue on
his vows to those with which he serves
will get him to the dawn
-- Please accept this as a small thank you to each of those who serve at this time, or who have done so in the past... Thank You.. so much, for your service to our country, and for protecting and defending the freedoms that we treasure.
