OUR BROTHER THE MARINE
A poem and note written by Leon's sister ~ Omie ~ and presented to him Christmas 2005
Our Brother The Marine
Our brother the Marine is one of the toughest we've seen
He is off to travel far & wide & we pray that God stays by his side
The things he'll see & the things he'll do is all to protect me & you
He's serving our country in a time of trouble & doubt ~ We gave him some gadgets to make sure he is not without
A second generation Marine- we know he has a tough act to follow ~ So the words courage & honor will never be hollow
Our debt of gratitude for his service to our nation is one that will never be taken
lightly or without thought or prayer for we know he is the one who is there
on the front lines so we can stay safe & sound for a family who loves him more could never be found
So here's to our brother the Marine ~ Who is one of the toughest we've seen
May God bless him & keep him safe from harm until we once again can hold him in our arms!
