“The Ultimate Price” by, Travis Allen Renfro

The people who fight for freedom,

Only they can comprehend.

That one solid reason,

Why our lives they still defend.

Because when they enlisted,

They took an obligatory oath.

To protect all our freedom,

And preserve our nation’s growth.

They can’t seem to realize,

The pain that they create.

Whenever they fight battles,

They can’t choose their fate.

Through all of their training,

And all that they sacrifice.

They fight the Ultimate fight,

But pay the Ultimate Price.

(Dedicated to the memory of Capt. Nathanael J. Doring and Cpl. Richard A. Bennett)
