Memorial Day 2018

The call of duty’s pull is strong

Honor loads the machine gun

Love divided between home and field

Multiplies sacrificial freedom

Dust covered boots trek minefields

Thrashing through thickets to save

Mission minded courage takes hold

Together as one of the brave

Living to live, but ready to die

Soldiers face what we can ignore

Deep calls to deep, forging for life

Pure love pays the ultimate price

All give some, and some gave all

We wave the Red, White, and Blue

Colors that fly for our freedom

For America, for me, and for you.




Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

(John 15:13)

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. (Psalm 82: 3-4)

Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. (Psalm 27:3)

Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
