A life as a soldier

Submitted by Paige Smith, age 11, in the under 12 category

It is not easy but someone who is willing to spare their life to

save people that don’t know is great enough to be a hero. War is a

brave thing to do. This is for you

Poppies are red.

The sky is blue.

I hope you like this poem I wrote it just for you.

I hope you find peace with your life in a free country. The battle

is won. And you are done. We fully appreciate the service to our

country. We will never forget the day soldiers went to war and

gained freedom. You saved not only just us but our families and

our friends families.
