This Memorial Day poem is from Preacherpollard's Blog.
They fought a fight of sacrifice
On land, by air, and sea
Privation, starvation, an awful price
To guard our liberty
Some were cut down in prime of life
Others came home with scars
They faced great fears and perilous strife
For country, for stars and bars
We owe a debt of gratitude
We never could repay
May we have a humble attitude
This aptly named Memorial Day
And looking backward to a different nation
One more ancient, but still existent
We are humbled by their proclamation
Of their allegiance most persistent
They gave their lives in spiritual war
Fighting the wily adversary
Faithful unto death, this sanctified score
Wore their armor, though the battle was scary
We walk behind these noble groups
One in nation, the other in doctrine
Our lives should be changed by these gallant troops
We should be better because of this squadron
Each reminds us that freedom is not cheap
Each shows us the greatness of service
If fidelity is sown, then great honor we reap
Cowardice would do them both disservice
May we step forward, the church of our Lord
While these freedoms remain to us all
And share Christ boldly, with vigor restored
And answer our Chief Commander’s call!

New Testament Christians who strive to accomplish God's will in God's way.
