    The Silent Ranks
    I wear no uniforms, no blues or greens.
    But, I am in the military, in the ranks rarely seen.
    I have no rank upon my shoulders. Salutes I do not give.
    But in the military world is where I live and am rarely seen.
    I am not in the chain of command, orders I do not give or get.
    But my husband is the one who does, this I can not forget.
    I am not the one who fires a weapon, Who puts his life on the line.
    But my job is just as tough, I’m the one who is always left behind.
    My husband is a patriot, a brave and pride filled man.
    And the call to serve his country not all can understand.
    Behind the lines, I see things needed to keep this country free.
    My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do my kids and me.
    I love the man I married. The military is his life.
    So I pledge to support my hero and stand among the silent ranks known as
    THE MILITARY WIFE. patriot;
