This poem was sent to me through my email, Part 1 only and "Author Unknown." Yes, I passed it on as is. Later, I was reading it again and couldn't believe no one knew the Author, so I "Googled" it and here I am. I sent the original with Part 1 & 2 and the Author Joshua Helterbran to everyone I sent it to originally, plus the person who sent it to me. I was so impressed with the poem, I want to read it in it's entirety on Veterans Day. Hope you don't mind. Thank you.

I read this moving poem in church this past Sunday as we gathered to honor our veterans. I could hardly get through it but when I was done there were not many dry eyes in the congregation...An awesome reminder of our awesone defenders of our freedom.

This poem is so personal to me and it is such a true feeling of our soldiers. My son is in Afghanistan right now and my heart is heavy for him. Love to all our soldiers and their families who sacrifice also.

My father, who served in Vietnam, has asked that I read your beautiful poem at his funeral. When I read it after he gave it to me, I cried because it described my father so well. I hope I still have many years left with my father. I just wanted to thank you for putting into words things he is not quite able to say himself.

What a wonderful and touching poem! I have never served for our country, but do my best to support the brave and wonderful people that do. I pray that when I see my lord on judgement day, I can humbly say I served him well and I too will have served my time in hell and will be welcomed into heaven. Gods bless you and all our troops!

What a wonderful poem and your mother must be so proud to have a son like you. From a former Fairfielder whose late husband served in the Army from 1952-1954 and he was always proud that he had served his country. May God Bless You.

I'm not an american. I'm a Chilean Army LTC (retired) As you I also served my country and I had the honor to be part of the 8th Special Forces Group (US) for a year. Now, from a brother in arms to other, congratulations for all you wrote. Your words are the words of all men and women that serve their own countries for freedom. Only those we served and our families know what it means. I salute you my brother in arms.

I'm not an American, I'm a retired 32 year British Cop. It makes me proud that we have allies and friends like this. May your God take care of you, and all servicemen of all countries fighting the "implacable foe".

Thank you

The love of my life, and fiance for 16 years, just passed away from stomach, lung and panchreatic cancer. He was an Army veteran in good standing. When I saw your poem on "Extreme Makeover:Home Edition", I loved it! It has helped me immensely, to think that it might be my Bill, facing GOD. Thank you for your service.

I am so moved by this poem. I have two children who are Soldiers. One daughter who is doing Basic at Ft. Sill, OK and a son who is presently in Korea. I have never in my life felt such pride as I have being the Mother of two US Soldiers, now I know pride isn't a good thing if used in the wrong "text", but the pride you have in your Children, is the kind I think God would be proud of.

Beautiful. beautiful piece you have written! Thank you for your service, and thank you (and all other military personnel) for your sacrifice and willingness to fight for my freedoms, as well as the rest of the population of America. I just traveled through Ft. Sill/ Lawton area making my way back home to TX, and each future time that I pass through, I'll think of you and send wishes on your recuperation! Once again, thank you and God Bless!

Your Poem is beautiful. It just means so much to me because I have family and friends in my life that have served in the military. I pray for all the soldiers that have come back and for the families who still have soldiers that are serving. I also pray for the families who have lost their loved ones . God Bless everyone
