A Memorial Day Thank You

This memorial day, American Warehouse Systems wants to thank every American soldier, past and present, for their sacrifices for our freedom. We also want to remember those soldiers who have paid the ultimate price to defend our country. We appreciate everything the American military is doing and pray for the safe return of everyone fighting overseas.

Memorial Day

– C W Johnson

We walked among the crosses
Where our fallen soldiers lay.
And listened to the bugle
As TAPS began to play.
The Chaplin led a prayer
We stood with heads bowed low.
And I thought of fallen comrades
I had known so long ago.
They came from every city
Across this fertile land.
That we might live in freedom.
They lie here ‘neath the sand.
I felt a little guilty
My sacrifice was small.
I only lost a little time
But these men lost their all.
Now the services are over
For this Memorial Day.
To the names upon these crosses
I just want to say,
Thanks for what you’ve given
No one could ask for more.
May you rest with God in heaven
From now through evermore.
