A few lines from "A Soldier's Honor":
"Our lives are built upon a framework
The framework of privilege and freedom
Purchased through the blood, sweat and tears
Of our soldiers, these brave men and women
A soldier's heart has known courage
For they've placed liberty before their own life
And in solemn decision committed
To preserving the rights due mankind
Leaving the comfort and safety of loved ones
Entrusted with a high and noble purpose ..."
part of the last verse in the poem:
"For a soldier's honor doesn't end with their death
HONOR becomes their eternal legacy
An inheritance left to this earth and mankind..."
