SERGEANT CHRISTOPHER BRIFFETT
Above anything so many see a natural lead:
His presence effective, this indeed.
For when he speaks, soldiers turn to hear,
With respect from the troops, not from fear.
Through peacetime war, he has held his own,
And negative to our country he will not condone.
Over time we have asked for his advice,
Listening each time, he never thinks twice.
Then he makes a difference, like it or not,
For integrity, the greatest gift, that a soldier’s got.
Members speak highly, young and old,
So why more often has he not been told?
He is a leader of the, grandest kind,
But yet again, he is left behind.
No longer now, must they refuse to see,
A chief in our military, he has to be.
