CAMO - Connecting All Military Others
Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day!
The Silent Ranks
I wear no uniforms, no blues or CB greens,
But I am in the military in the ranks rarely seen.
I have no rank upon my shoulders.
Salutes I do not give.
But the military world is the place where I live.
I'm not in the chain of command, orders I do not get.
But my husband is the one that does,
this I cannot forget.
I'm not the one who fires the weapon,
who puts my life on the line.
But my job is just as tough. I'm the one that's left behind.
My husband is a Marine, a brave and prideful man
and the call to serve his country, not all can understand.
Behind the lines I see the things needed
to keep this country free.
My husband makes this sacrifice,
but so do our kids and me.
I love the man I married. the Marine Corps is his way of life.
But I stand among the silent ranks
