Del “Abe” Jones


You’ll see them standing proudly
In the summer s heat or cold
Their heads bowed in silent prayer
For the young Soldier, and the old.

They will take the time away
Precious hours of their lives
To fold our Flag carefully
To present to loved ones, kids and wives.

Some people think they are paid
But no, it s at their expense, too
So, when you see an Honor Guard
Just tell them, Thanks, for all you do.

Author’s Note: I wrote this for the Honor Guard benefit at VFW Post 4641, in Dickson, TN. If you have a VFW in your town please forward this on to them. Honor Guards rarely get the thanks they deserve.
