They fight for the dirty politicians and the corrupt government. Sorry just my opinion. I am honored that you would speak for them with this. Great job sir!

I visited my father yesterday. He is buried in the National Cemetary in Riverside. Every grave, thousands, were decorated with the American flag....for miles and miles...it was breathtaking.
Your poem is a wonderful tribute to those who sacrificed so much - to those heros that are still here to tell their story and to those that lost their lives or lost someone they love. Thank you BR. You are a hero. Happy Memorial Day
Hugs, Julie
