AMERICAN SOLDIERS

 

               They stand in their uniforms straight and tall,

They are family members one and all.

They put on the uniforms, not for money, fame, or glory

But for the untold story.

The story of wanting to be free to raise their families.

A story of love, emotion, and religious devotion.

They are willing to take the stand, and become the sacrificial lamb.

They are the AMERICAN soldiers who believe in liberty

To be able to express yourself no matter what it may be.

They come from the farmlands, the mountains, the big cities

And the small towns, where every soldier imaginable can be found.

Just read the story of Sergeant ALVIN YORK who in the

First World War he had fought.

He was a conscientious objector who came from the upper

Farmlands of TENNESSEE – didn’t believe in war but wanted to be free.

They told him about the founding of AMERICA and what they had gone thru

And to make a decision of what he wanted to do.

He sat on the mountaintop staring across the land

Knowing he had to make a decision – he had to take a stand.

With the thought of the bible s verse “thou shall not kill “

And the other thought saying “freedom is not free”

This has been going on throughout history.

He and nine others captured more prisoners than they dared to count

This is what AMERICA is all about.
