American Veteran 04

Thomas Edward Odegard

1950 ~ 2020 (age 69)

Obituary

In Your Honor

Unselfishly, you left your fathers and your mothers,

You left behind your sisters and your brothers.
Leaving your beloved children and wives,

You put on hold, your dreams-your lives.
On foreign soil, you found yourself planted

To fight for those whose freedom you granted.
Without your sacrifice, their cause would be lost

 But you carried onward, no matter the cost.

 

With a hand upon my heart, I feel

The pride and respect; my reverence is revealed
In the tears that now stream down my upturned face

 As our flag waves above you, in her glory and grace.
Freedom was the gift that you unselfishly gave

Pain and death was the price that you ultimately paid.
Every day, I give my utmost admiration, To those who had fought to defend our nation.
~In Love & Remembrance of Veteran Thomas Odegard
