“My country, ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From ev’ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!”
To ALL the Veterans…who have served, continue to serve and are no longer with us…THANK YOU for your dedication and sacrifice to this country! We are indebted to you!
Thinking about one soldier in particular…Lieutenant Colonel, David C. Canegata III – I salute you today and always, R.I.P. Dad. ♥

Thank you Jason, for reading my post and sharing your poem – it is beautifully written and resonated with me on so many levels – only a military father/family/child could understand. I am grateful for your service to this country and for sharing your message.
