Of all the medals upon our chests
From battles and wars we knew
The one admired as the very best
Is the one of infantry blue
It’s only a rifle upon a wreath
So why should it mean so much?
It is what it took to earn it
That gives it that Touch.
To earn this special accolade
You faced the enemy’s fire
Whether you survived or not
God dialed that one desire.
For those of us who served the cause
And brought this nation glory
It’s the Combat Infantrymen’s Badge
That really tells the story.
Dear Brother Combat Infantrymen;
As we approach Memorial Day it is with a deep and heartfelt gratitude that I thank each and everyone of you for your sacrifices to our great nation. Words can never convey the sadness for the tragic losses of our comrades and the feelings of somehow being given the opportunity to raise a family and do those things that so many of our brothers missed.I am so exceedingly grateful and humble for those of you who served. We served our nation and did our absolute best as we placed our lives on hold. We felt the pain that can last a lifetime and we only know because “Freedom has a price the protected will never know”. God Bless each and everyone of you and your families on this solemn weekend.
