Infinite Infinities of the American Legion Preamble

By CJ Reeves, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By CJ Reeves
VA Medical Center--San Francisco, CA

To uphold
To defend
To maintain
To foster
To perpetuate
To preserve
To inculcate
To combat
To make right
To promote
To safeguard
To transmit
To consecrate
To sanctify.


Notes: Written as an homage to the American Legion National Commander's visit to San Francisco. It's the foundation of what drives the American Legion. When documented here with 14 (fourteen) action verbs, it seems like a mighty tall order. Are these action verbs just words??? Do we know what they are and what they mean - to inculcate, to consecrate or to sanctify??
