2. Got Your Back
west side of monument
I am a small and precious child, my dad’s been sent to fight. The only place I’ll see his face, is in my dreams at night. He will be gone too many days for my young mind to keep track. I may be sad, but I am proud... My daddy’s got your back. • I am a caring mother. My son has gone to war. My mind is filled with worries that I have never known before. Everyday I try to keep my thoughts from turning black. I may be scared, but I am proud... My son has got your back. • I am a strong and loving wife, with a husband soon to go. There are times I’m terrified in a way most never know. I bite my lip, and force a smile as I watch my husband pack. My heart may break, but I am proud... My husband’s got your back… • I am a soldier… Serving proudly, standing tall. I fight for freedom, yours and mine by answering this call. I do my job while knowing, the thanks it sometimes lacks. Say a prayer that I’ll come home... It’s me who’s got your back.
a series of months, Sen. Franken worked with Navy officials and members of the Eden Valley American Legion Post to secure the anchor that was first put into service in 1942." (Submitted on November 21, 2013.)
