OPINION

LOMBARDO: POEM: THIS IS MEMORIAL DAY

LTC. Ret. Samuel Lombardo of Destin

THIS IS MEMORIAL DAY

This is Memorial Day

In our land of the free.

It’s because of those who sacrificed

Whose graves you’re here to see.

They fought on foreign lands

And across the open sea,

And paid the ultimate price

To keep you and I free.

So put all things aside

And honor this important day,

Which we have dedicated

As our Memorial Day
