Bravery never NOT without reward

Stay the course
Hold until relieved
Hold the line

It’s June Sixth 77 years ago

I was there as a little boy 57 years ago I cannot forget
My father a Swiss wanted Us to see this
SAME TERRIBLE WEATHER

PLEASE
YES SOME PEOPLE FORGET AWFULLY QUICK

THAT DAY June 6th 1944
Still is and will be a day that History shall not forget

Remember

Also those missing
Who might yet be alive

Finally
NO ONE IN THIS WORLD DOUBTS OUR MILITARY ABILITY

SOME TIMES WE INSIST ON A WANTED OUTCOME
FLEXIBILITY IS LIFE
RIGIDITY IS DEATH

THAT also is to your honor USMC

I had my brothers then
A band of brothers

We saluted spontaneously
On that cliff that day
We really didn’t know why

Remember
The Eagle has his right hand in the dollar bill
It’s an olive branch to shake hands with
For peace and doing business fairly
Lucky in his left he had the original 13
arrows
Many still respect commitment
AND your discipline

God is with your land yet
Not because heCAN ACT ON YOUR. COUNTRYS BEHALF

YOU ASK
HE WILL act on your behalf
Valor
Integrity
Honor in combat
Strength
Loyalty to your own

Never lost on the Almighty
Honor never in vain

Therefore

You did NOT start the fights
YOU STILL ARE DEDICATED TO ASSIST IN PUTTING AN END TO THEM

SIRS Gentlemen Ladies
Have a good day from ME

Ps

Right on the edge a cliff down to Omaha
It was very windy
Wet miserably cold
And low tide
Everything was salt in the air

One thought on “Bravery never NOT without reward”

  1. Pete – I’m saddened, but not surprised, that no one has chosen to comment on your poetry. It is a style not often emulated, and extremely difficult to follow and understand. I think that most people would probably consider it the ramblings of a demented mind, but won’t we all eventually think that way. I think I might understand what you’re trying to say, but I’m really not certain. One thing that confuses me most is why you selected the picture of a submarine in a violent, rough sea to accompany your poem. Are you a veteran yourself, Navy, Marines or Army? Or, simply the son of a veteran of the WW II D-Day battle visiting Normandy 20 years later? It would be interesting to know. Semper Fi!!! Top Pro
