THE FINAL
INSPECTION
The Soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass..
‘Step forward now,Soldier ,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?’
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
‘No, Lord, I guess I ain’t.
Because those of us who carry guns,
 Can’t always be a saint.
I’ve had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny,
That wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear..
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.
I know I don’t deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears
If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don’t, I’ll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
‘Step forward now, you Soldier,
You’ve borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell.’

PATRIOTS
It’s the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.
 
It’s the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.
 
It’s the Soldier, not the politicians
That ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness..
 
It’s the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.
 
Patriots,If it weren’t for the United States military,
there would be NO United States of America .
 
 JUST A REMINDER TO ALL FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS
Patriots,less than 1%of our entire population fight for us, less than 1% of the American population wear the uniforms of our military services.  Yet, there is a fairly large population of Americans that would not serve under any circumstance, you see they have been told it is their RIGHT to refuse service!
 
United States military are serving 3-4-5 combat tours in the middle east they are tired,broken, they have families too, they miss their girlfriends,boyfriends, their wives, their children, their country, yet they fight on.  
Our military is the best educated,motivated,military in the world and we should give them praise ever time that chance presents itself.!
GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY AND THEIR FAMILIES
