An Acrostic

In Their Memory

by pharp

In honor of all men and women who served

No words can express what you truly deserve

Through perilous times you fought for all

Hesitated not to answer your country's call

Entered the battlefield determined to fight

Integrity within to uphold freedom's right

Remembrance of the sacrifices made

Multitude of thanks...gratitude will not fade

Extreme loss...many families have suffered

Memories of loved ones' lives unrecovered

Overwhelmed with love and sympathy...cried

Remember all who fought, served and died

Yonder... are our heroes who fought with pride
