A Veteran’s Day Poem

When American had an urgent need, These brave ones rasised a hand; No hesitation held them back; They were proud to take a stand. They left their friends and family; they gave up normal life To serve their country and their God, They their plowed into the strife. They fought for freedom and for peace on strange and foreign shores; some lost new friends some lost their lives in long and brutal wars. Other veteran’s answers a call to support the ones who fought; Their country had requirements for the essential skills they brought. We salute every one of them the noble and the brave, The ones still with us here today, and those who rest in a grave. So here’s to our country’s heroes; they’re a cut above the rest; Let’s give the honor that is due to country very best.
