As the guns go off.

Another fallen soldier;
Being laid to rest.

I struggle to breathe;
For this tightness in my chest.

The bugler so smooth;
As he hits every note.

It is hard to swallow;
Because of this lump in my throat.

Tears fall like rain;
As I look to the sky.

No matter how many times I hear it;
Taps still makes me cry.

The bugle now silent;
As we pray for the dead.

I gather myself;
As I bow down my head.

Lord bless these heroes;
Who have given their lives.

Comfort their children;
Their husbands and wives.

Let us not forget;
They have given their all.

Let the bugle be silent;
Let no more soldiers fall.

The above post is framed in our house.
As this is a VERY special day in our house as we have 3 folded Flags.
1. For my Mom's dad during WWII USS Enterprise Aircraft carrier Chief Petty Officer
1. For my Dad from Korea Top Secret air wing Senior Master Sargent
1 For my younger Brother Desert Storm 3rd Battalion 2nd Armour Tank Commander Bronze star recipient & a graduate from West Point.

So it is with the greatest respect and admiration for our Men And Women serving this Great Nation. I say Thank You for your past and present service.
And wish those now serving to hopefully return home to your love ones ASAP.

My oldest brothers wife has ~5~ children serving in the military. She had to special order the 5 star flag, as no one stocked one. The company that made it didn't charge when they sent it. I hold everyone who served, and serves, in highest regard. A Guy
