Dear American Soldier
by Janice Sanford

Dear American Soldier:

Thank you, from the bottom
of your country's grateful heart
For guarding liberty and
doing your part.

For carrying Old Glory in peace
time and war,
and enduring hardships to keep
oppression from America's shore.

For setting examples for others
to follow proudly...
For being American to the core
And giving of yourself unselfishly.

You are my hero... Because of your
love for the high idea of liberty,
I can nurture the next generation
under the blanket of freedom
your sacrifices wove in the name of
justice for all, and liberty.

Thank you, from the bottom
of your country's grateful heart
For guarding liberty and
doing your part.
