THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

There is no need.
For your kind words.
It was an HONOR .
To have served.
In the United States Marine Corps
Of the Nation of my birth.
My four uncles in my family.
Set the example of service.
In the U.S Army during World War II.
I rather have these words.
Of Thank You for your service.
Than looks of hate,
That I see in some faces.
Because of the color,
Of my skin.
You know me, not.
~ Ricardo
