Soldier's story

Soldier's story
is often told. Air, land, sea
soldier fights, true and bold. Soldier stands 
with saluted hand, many serve in foreign lands. 
Marching orders followed fully. Obedience given 
often wholly.Weapons drawn in the fight. Echoed 
gunfire fills the night. Soldier serves his country duly. 
Uniform fitted, worn truly. Soldier's pride, 
service faithful. Soldier's country, humbly grateful.
Soldier's tomb revered as holy.
This is part of
Soldier's story.

Blood shed under fire, coolly. Soldier's life honored, greatly. 
Sacrificial lives recalled. Tales of tactics, hero's call.
Lexington, Gettysburg, Iwo Jima, Remagen, 
Hue City, Baghdad, and Kabul. Soldiers serve 
unceasing against enemy rule. Epic battles
lost and won. Engagements fought
under moon and sun.
Fought with blood,
fateful glory.
This is part of 
Soldier's story.
