For veterans and their families from Calumet Park Cemetery and Funeral Chapel…

076

The flag that stands for freedom, shouts loud for all to hear…

“We are the good old U.S.A., the land we hold so dear.”

The boys and girls who dressed the part, aged beyond compare…

when they hit the shores of Normandy, or places “over there”.

Men and women served with pride, at home and overseas…

All sacrificed their days of youth so we could all be free.

And others, please remember, have never returned home…

Their souls to God, their blood to soil, their families left alone.

At Cal Park, we thank them all, and understand their plight…

Peace the goal, but because of them the world still fears our might.

The uniform that makes us one, from Army to Marines…

and Navy, Air Force and the Guard, brings peace by any means.

From the heart of the author, Daniel Moran. Ā Thanks to all veterans and their families.
