    Among The Silent Ranks

    Advertisements
    I wear no uniforms, no blues or Army greens,
    But I am in the Army 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 who does, this I can not 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 patriot, 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 the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me.
    I love the man I married, soldering his life,
    But I stand among the silent ranks known as the Army Wife.

    Of course this can be changed around to other branches in the military

    I my soldier!

    I surprisingly kind of like this. I'm usually not a fan of real broad generalized military pride stuff.
