By Caryl Clem:
Signs announce parade date, time information
Reminders of a deeper message
Our military personnel’s sacrifice and dedication
Battles remains, bloody carnage
Countless names and bodies
Final testament to fighting bravely.
For those lost, not found, a painful memory.
Celebrate that their values did not perish
Invest in love, faith, hope and charity
Live these values with appreciation
So our freedoms and choices flourish.
Pay tribute to fallen soldiers in our military forces.
They insured Democracy is our past and future tense.
