soldiers family heritage


Every family member had served this nation
He looked forward to it with anticipation
Every member had left their mark
And on this road he would embark.

Members had served since the civil war
It was a desire, not a chore.
With pride and determination he knew
What he had to do.
He had to defend the red, white, and blue.

He decided to try for the navy seals
It was a desire which he did feel.
He had to be the best that he could be
For the honor of his family.

The training for the seals is really hell
After the first week he could tell.
Most of the members of his platoon
Decided to give up much to soon.

This was the biggest challenge that he would face
And his name he would not disgrace.
He thought of his family and what they went through
And he knew what he had to do.

He called and asked his family to come down
And seeing them , new strength he found.
His father held the civil war flag
And for that he was glad.

It had been passed down from generation to generation
And this sight was his salvation.
A new inspiration arose in his chest
And he would give his very best.

The family gave him the strength he would need
For in him they had planted the seed.
he would awake with his mind crystal clear
And achieving his goal he had no fear.

Now he was a navy seal, so much pride he did feel
He had achieved not one goal but two
And of this his family knew.

There is now another generation on its way
And to the lord he does pray
Let this continue down the line
For when it becomes my sons time.
