Unknown Honor (A Tribute to the Guard of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier)

by Jason Tomlinson 

There’s something about the dedication 

devotion discipline commitment to our nation
and her children that have offered up the full measure
they did not recon their lives as a treasure
but sacrificed themselves for country and kin
now held fast in the hearts of all men
especially by those guarding the unknown
honor for honor the dead are never alone
no they receive reverent salute every hour every day
21 steps in 21 seconds with one thing to say
we honor you we honor the sacrifice you made
we honor your families and those you’ve left behind may your glory never fade
