Robert Miller - Soldier Hero

A young man beyond his years
stepped forward for his soldier peers,
thinking of only their safety,
drawing the wrath of the enemy,
holding them at bay
on this January 2008 day,
killing many
until his fatal wounds
brought his heroic bravery
to its deadly end,
but not before saving all!

America will always
remember Robert Miller
for his ultimate sacrifice
in going above and beyond
the call of duty
for his fellow brothers-in-arms
and beloved country...
eternally residing in the
Medal of Honor fraternity!
