Poet’s Tribute Read at Kerens Veterans Memorial Program

From Staff Reports

Sandy Carroll, the 2020 “Woman Who Makes A Difference” Choice by the Thomas Meredith Chapter of the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century, had one of her poems read at the Kerens Veterans Memorial Program.

Danny Combs, program organizer of the event, read Carroll’s poem during his closing remarks. Titled “The Son,” the poem gives tribute to veterans, and was originally published in the May 29 issue of the Corsicana Daily Sun.

The poem’s final lines extended recognition to the enduring sacrifices veterans have made to preserve our freedoms:

“These treasures they sent home
To us so many years ago
Remind-us on this Memorial Day
We will never let you go.”
