A few lines from "The Hero's Path":

*Note:  This poem is not only for soldiers who die in the line of duty.  This poem is for every soldier who has protected and cared for the lives of other people.


"You risked your life for others

Each and every day

Understanding and accepting the potential cost

That someday you might pay

For such is the path of a Hero

A terrain where only the brave would choose to go

For 'tis like a mountain pass, narrow and rugged

Far removed from the peaceful vally down below

Yet you walked that difficult path daily

Seeing harsh things, while doing such good

And we loved and respected your courage

More than you understood

And you were a blessing to countless people

Through your selfless and courageous deeds ..."

final verse of the poem:

..."Your efforts will impact generations

Through lives saved, and all the good you did were OUR HERO

And we all thank God that you lived!"
