Merry Christmas and Thanks to American Troops and Coalition Troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and throughout the world and a Christmas-Card Page to Jeff Phillip Craig.
The best of the words of a sage inscribed on a Christmas card page can never be nobler than courage of soldiers like one who's named Jeff Phillip Craig. On Christmas, to Jeff we give thanks for serving in liberty's ranks for countrymen's sake, posterity's sake, and sake of his buddies in ranks. We also give thanks to the rest who likewise are doing their best to bravely confront the terror they hunt so Faith can in Liberty rest.
A Christmas Card Page to Jeff Phillip Craig.
The best of the words of a sage
inscribed on a Christmas card page
can never be nobler
than courage of soldiers
like one who's named Jeff Phillip Craig.
On Christmas, to Jeff
we give thanks
for serving in liberty's ranks
for countrymen's sake,
and sake of his buddies in ranks.
also give thanks to the rest
who likewise are doing their best
to bravely confront
the terror they hunt
so Faith can in Liberty rest.
all who endure and remain
on duty in snow, heat, or rain
this Christmas we say
the song we would play
says Thanks for Your Deeds in Our Name:
Thanks in Our Name for Deeds in Our Name.
farms in the country, from cities and towns
from places quite humble, from places renowned,
from fact'ries, from stores and from offices tall,
from service professions, from stores in our malls,
come citizen soldiers their country to serve
as full time professionals or guard or reserve.
From mothers and fathers and husbands and wives,
from children and lovers and friends in their lives,
our citizen soldiers depart despite tears
on missions of danger in spite of their fears
as selflessly, proudly, and bravely they serve
that freedom of conscience and Faith be preserved.
In caves and in tunnels where murderers train
unspeakable terror they face in our name.
With principled discipline, training and skill
in taming the instinct to kill or be killed
our citizen soldiers have honored our name,
so, proudly we thank them for deeds in our name.
They serve in the skies, and at sea and on land,
in mountains and jungles and deserts of sand,
on foot and in foxholes, in trenches and tents,
in tanks and on submarine mission descents,
in planes and on ships and on carrier decks,
in Humvees, and hangars and convoys on treks.
For risks to themselves in their battles with terrors
increased by attempts to use force without error,
for risks to themselves they increase by providing
assistance to those who for freedom are striving,
our citizen soldiers have honored our name,
so thank them we must for their deeds in our name.
So we and posterity freedom retain
barbaric regimes you confront in our name.
To you who defend us, we proudly proclaim
our pride in the deeds you have done in our name.
We thank you, we thank you for deeds in our name,
We thank you, we thank you for deeds in our name.·
