Our Wounded

They have given dearly for our country's sake,
Thankfully escaping the fallen's wake,
Many returning to duty and doing the same,
While others come home still fighting the pain.

Oh, so many have spilt their blood,
Leaving a hand, arm, leg, or more in the red mud,
Seldomly pointing the finger of blame
Keeping their heads high with no shame.

They go forward with their lives,
Even if the memory cuts like many knives,
Comforted by the support of family and friends,
Who are there with no pretense.

So, remember these unsung ones too,
Who were wounded doing their part,
And earned their Purple Heart,
As they surely deserve our pride and gratitude.

Solider with arm wound
Marine with head wound

Purple Heart Medal

"Our Wounded" honors all America's active and veteran military men and women .... who
were wounded in combat ... serving valiantly for our beloved land of the free ... and are
among the ones ... who make HER ... the Home of the Brave!
