The Badge of Glory

Posted: Aug 9, 2017

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.
