The Silent Ranks
I wear no uniforms, no blues or army greens.
But I am in the military in the ranks rarely seen.
I have no rank upon my shoulders.
Salutes I do not give.
But the military world is the place where I live.
I'm not in the chain of command, orders I do not get.
But my husband is the one who does, this I can not forget.
I'm not the one who fires the weapon, who puts my life on the line.
But my job is just as tough.
I'm the one that's left behind.
My husband is a patriot, a brave and prideful man and the call to serve his
country not all can understand.
Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free.
My husband makes the sacrifice.
But so do our kids and me.
I love the man I married.
Soldiering is his life.
But I stand among the silent ranks
known as the Military Wife.
Thank you Danni and everyone who is a member of the Silent Rank.
When I was working on this posting on Saturday, I received an email from Danni's blog with happy, happy news she posted! Her hubby will be coming home within a week!! God Bless!
We make lots of cards and put them in boxes or drawers and in a sense forget about them. Lets use them and show our solders we appreciate and think of them all the time. I found several web sites who will send our mail to the solders...rather in a foreign land, hospital or rehab at anysoldier.com I did a snoop check to see if it was a legitimate service and I found this newspaper article. Lets band together to show our soldiers we support them! If you are not from the US .... several other countries have this same type of service to send to soldiers world wide.
Thanks and Hugz,
