Need Text for Speech for Returning Marine
Posted by: Marilyn Everts Critari (ID *****3841) Date: March 01, 2008 at 12:25:22

My town honors local military returning from Iraq and Aghanistan with a ceremony and as a Daughter of the American Revolution, I give a little speech. So far all returning military have been Army at which time I read the poem "It's a Soldier" by Charles M. Province, which I place in a frame and give to soldier. Everyone in attendance loves it, especially family members.

Now we have a returning MARINE on Tues. March 4th! I don't know what to say.

Can anyone suggest a poem or other appropriate text I can use.

I will spend rest of day on Internet looking for something.

I need your help!

A desperate Marilyn
