This is a Poem that I wrote for the soldier that stood between me and the bullets in the ambush last August.

Just Doing Your Job

You stand your ground
As the bullets fly
Guarding my back
With your keen eye.

You do not falter
You do not run
As the fire fight
It has begun.

I climb in my truck
As I hear you let go
With round after round
The bullets flow.

I grab a gear
Drive into the night
And leave you there
To finish the fight.

I know not your name
Or where you are from
But a thanks to you
From my heart comes.

Just doing my job
That’s what you say
No thanks is needed
But for you I pray.

May God keep you safe
And keep you from harm
Till home again
In loving Arms.
