Thank You For Your Service

WWI Veteran and Feline Admirer, Prospect Hill Cemetery, Peckville, PA


Wake, soldier, wake, thy war-horse waits
  To bear thee to the battle back;
Thou slumberest at a foeman’s gates,—
  Thy dog would break thy bivouac;
Thy plume is trailing in the dust
And thy red falchion gathering rust.
                                                                     
-----Thomas Kibble Hervey (1804-1859)

A belated thank you to our veterans for centuries of service, protecting the free, by being the brave.
