Answering the Call

By Daniel Allen, Air Force

Writing Type: Poem

By Daniel Allen
--Port Richey, FL

With a life dedicated to others, 
Answering the call of my brothers,
Sacrificing many freedoms and rights
Under adverse conditions and long flights.

Friends and family left far behind, 
An uncertain future is on my mind.
With support and kindness from home, 
Letters and gifts of warmth are shown.

As I wait and prepare for the worst,
Standing vigilant, "Who will fire first?"
The potential is great for much suffering;
Dedication and skill are my offering.

I have always served the sick and injured;
With pride and devotion I have endured.
I volunteered when I answered the call;
For my country, I would give my all.

THERE ARE NO GREATER ASPIRATIONS
THEN THE WORDS "MY COUNTRY" MAY EVOKE.
