Del “Abe” Jones


It seems the Towers and Flight 93
Dominate the headline news
But there were many others
Who were as painful to lose.

The men and women at the Pentagon
Who spend each and every day
Working to keep our world safe
And protect “The American Way”.

They could never have imagined
They were there, on the “front line”
In the battle to preserve the “Freedoms”
And the “Rights” of yours and mine.

In the midst of the “battle”
And beginning of the “war”
They stood, and faced the “enemy”
Did their “duty” and, so much more.

So many “heroes” in that building
That we will never, ever know
And so many acts of “bravery”
That the civil/military show.

We should all “salute” them
And bow our heads in prayer
To thank them for their sacrifice
To show them how much we care.
