A salute, on Armed Forces Day (with postcard)
How happy am I when my soldier is by,
While he kisses and presses his Annie O.
'Tis a soldier alone can delight me O,
For his graceful look do delight me O;
While guarded in his arm
I'll fear no war's alarm,
Neither danger nor death shall e'er affright me O.
-Dumbarton's Drums (Trad.)
I won't limit my admiration and affection to soldiers alone. Every man and woman serving in our armed forces, today, earns hugs, kisses, and a big, serious salute.
