 Poems by The Old Cowboy

The Grandfathers


We knew Grandfathers of the past
The ones that helped pave the way
Setting  pride and standards that will last
Preparing young troops for the task

Many names we have been called
Army/Air Force MP's  Air Force AP's
If you check and  read all the logs
Some answered to Security Police

Drawing the blueprint for the future
For the new Security Forces of today
Hoping in their eyes we are not a fading glimmer
And from their duties they do not stray

The job still to protect Bases and Planes
Guarding the ones who patrol the skies
The duties have never changed
Still all the old and new rules apply

As we journey back to the yesterdays
Thinking of the old stern Sgt's we knew
We realize that we are the Grandfathers of today
Having served with pride and virtues
