a poem by: Zach

tom with tall upright stature

tom of the united states marine core

tom whose hair is close cropped

is my cousin

fighting in Afghanistan

protecting America

defending our freedom

wearing camouflage all day

shooting the enemy all night

tom drives in a convoy

risking his life everyday

completing his mission

because he is a an American

Tom inside a combat a combat uniform

inside enemy territory

inside a war zone

is a hero

driving gas truck

transporting weapons

ready for combat determind to succeed

bravely completing his tour of duty
