To our Veterans: Thank You.
Then Mom explained that no, it's not at all the same thing! That Veterans Day is a day, today!, here in the United States where everyone honors people who have served in the armed services. Friends, family, neighbors, strangers...Mom says we need to thank them all for the things they've done for us, because without their bravery and selflessness the world we know today would probably be a very different place.
A Veteran's Day Tribute
These brave ones raised a hand;
No hesitation held them back;
They were proud to take a stand.
They gave up normal life;
To serve their country and their God,
They plowed into the strife.
On strange and foreign shores;
Some lost new friends; some lost their lives
In long and brutal wars.
To support the ones who fought;
Their country had requirements for
The essential skills they brought.
The noble and the brave,
The ones still with us here today,
And those who rest in a grave.
They’re a cut above the rest;
Let’s give the honor that is due
To our country’s very best.
