The greatest gift that one can give,
is their life so others may live!

Earl Jones, Jr. and his first cousin,
Clifford Jerome Lewis both served,
in the Armed forces of USA!
I believe both were 132nd Airborne,
a division of the United States Army.
The jumped out of airplanes and
screamed like eagle as the landed!
Familiar or unfamiliar terrain,
it didn't matter to elite soldiers.
They met the enemy, engaged him,
and defeated the enemy and came home!
So did I a Navy man, alleluia!
Earl Jones my brother,
Jerome (Joe-Joe)Lewis first cousin.
Quite a few Army, Air force, Marines,
and sailors didn't come home!
Some of them gave some,
and some of them gave all, their life,
Yet some of them are missing in action!
Others consumed by seas,
some by avalanches,
some on sands in strange lands!
Places we don't know nor wish to go!
Yet, ten thousand or more soldiers,
deployed around the world,
including my niece, ready to give,
their most precious asset,
for you and I all of us,
their lives.
When freedom cries will hear her call,
and passionately wipe her tears?

Dear Michael, Thank you and all of your dear family members for their service to our country. Your poem is a tribute to them and others who gave their best. God Bless them one and all. Amen my friend.

Memorial Day. Hot Dogs. Beer. Three Day Weekend. Nothing to those who should be forever grateful for the ones who made it all possible.
