~ MILITARY SPOUSE ~
She is the real foot-soldier
On rough roads behind at home,
She'll stand up for Her loved one
Who is often on the roam.
She'll raise the family, pay the bills
And do it all without complaint,
Many times She's not too happy
But holds Her feelings in restraint.
She's the backbone of the Services
And holds the Line on the Homefront,
She'll put Her own life on hold
With Her Spouses' on the forefront.
Those Ladies hold the "Fort" down
For their significant others,
Who are off preserving Freedom
With their "Sisters" and "Brothers".
There's not enough Credit given
To those Spouses left behind,
For they truly are a rare breed
Yes! She's a very special kind.
