Vijay Diwas 2022: Poems honoring those who serve
The Call to Duty
A call to duty is sent out
And the strong and brave reply.
They do it for the love of country,
So there's never a need to ask why.
They leave behind all that they love,
Their families, their homes and their lives,
Because to preserve these precious things
Is the goal for which each soldier strives.
So God bless our troops,
The courageous women and men,
Who fight to make sure
The bells of freedom peal again.

How Do You Measure a Soldier's Sacrifice?
Female soldier; Copyright Elliot Burlingham at Dreamstime.com
How do you measure a soldier's sacrifice?
Is it by the number of friends and family left behind?
Is it by the months or years given in service?
How do you measure a soldier's courage?
Is it by the number of objectives completed,
Or by the number of bullets dodged or missions served?
How do you measure a soldier's honor?
Is it by the duty he or she volunteers for,
Or by the number of medals earned?
The simple truth is that these things are immeasurable,
As is this country's debt to all who serve,
And pay the price for freedom in this land.

The Ultimate Sacrifice
The ultimate sacrifice is to lay down your life
For God, family, and country.
Countless soldiers have charged into battle,
Knowing they wouldn't return to their loved ones
And might never be laid to rest in their native soil.
Yet they took the risk, fought hard to the end,
And hoped their efforts would turn the tide toward victory.
They made the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow soldiers,
For their country, for you, and for me.
May God bless them eternally.
By Kelly Roper
A Brave Soldier
In his heart he holds courage,
In his hands, he holds our lives.
A Brave Soldier he may be, but only at the front lines.
He is weakened by all the death,
He is halted by their souls.
For he knows in this battle, hatred rules one's goal.
He does not fight hatred,
He fights for their lives instead.
Cause he knows hatred has no value when so many are dead.
As he lies in death, knowing it will come,
He glances at the sky and makes peace with all he's done.
For on the battlefield, life is as precious as gold.
And one must always choose should it be friend or foe.
He closes his eyes and hopes in his death no more victims will fall.
But, in his heart, he knows his country one day will call.
For A Brave Soldier to take the front line and give there his life as he,
He just hopes all are content knowing A Brave Soldier he will always be.
