POEM (The "Military" Mom)

There hasn't been much said
about the "military" mom...
yet no wars could ever
have been won without her.
A "military' mom is a teacher
of independence, perseverance,
discipline and integrity;
possesses a great sense of humor,
and can make of any house a home.
She is a woman of quiet strength
who has shaped the hearts
of our bravest heroes
and taught them
to value peace above all.
The "military" mom is unshakable
in love for her country.
That is how she is able to let go
of her most precious treasure --
a son or daughter.
We proudly salute
and thank
the "military" mom.
~Eileen Hall 1998~
